Fly Fishing Looses Another Legend: Dick Talleur

The world of fly fishing and fly tying has lost another great man, Dick Talleur.

"Richard W. Talleur passed on Friday February 18, 2011, after a brief illness.  Originally from Clinton Corners, NY, Dick enjoyed a long career with AT&T.  After retiring from AT&T, Dick took his favorite hobby and first love, and made it his life.  Dick was an accomplished fly tier and fisherman, and a well-known and respected author of several books on fishing and fly-tying.   Dick loved his sport and, with his many friends, supported the continuation of fly fishing and the practice of catch and release."

Rest in Peace...
