  1. Good review.

    “rabid salmon fly tyers”, eh?

    Not the only totally blinkered and self-obsessed sociopaths and borderline Hannibals and Dexters (with a touch of Mr Robot) in our fishy number, I’ve sometimes had reason to think over the past decade or two.

    Right. Time, I think, for a replay of Season 1 of Netflix’s “Mindhunter” from a few months back, taking in the wonderful clock man polymath in the “S Town” podcast along the way … maybe even find my way to a spring riverbank soon and see what the totally mad real flies and the fish that crazily eat are up to … to not not cease from such pointless and profitless exploration then ultimately “arrive where where started and know the place for the first time”, as that really weird T.S. Eliot Anglo-American poet guy once wrote.

  2. PS

    The correct Eliot original:

    “We shall not cease from exploration
    And the end of all our exploring
    Will be to arrive where we started
    And know the place for the first time.”

    ― T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets
