"Joe changed our fly fishing world as no one else has. If you are an avid fly fisherman and under the age of 50, chances are you have never heard of Joe Brooks, but you owe him a debt of gratitude. One of Joe's greatest gifts to fly fishermen is that he opened up the world to all those who followed.
