Mark Twain once said “I never let the truth get in the way of a really good story.”

Dickson’s FlyFishing Tales is nothing more than a montage of outdoor memories that Mike and I have collected over the past 30 years as flyfishing guides. As you read these angling accounts from bears to eagles, no doubt you may question the credibility of the experiences. Sometimes I wonder myself. The fact is. All are true, or at least they are, as my little mind has chosen to remember. I don’t believe you can spend some 200 days a year out in the wild for nearly three decades, without having those episodes that leave even you wondering, “Did that just really happen?” I will let you as a reader, decide.

Sometimes our writings pokes fun of the angler. Mike’s writing “Dad’s perfect boat” is a poke at me. All are in good jest. Simple reflections from simple men. Enjoy.

Best of fishing,
