After Stan Bogdan passed away in March of 2011, Monte Burke shared an earlier story he wrote about Stan and his reels.
Stanley Bogdan–perhaps the finest reel maker the world of fly-fishing has ever known–passed away last night at the age of 92. I wrote about Stan and his reels in the 4/13/09 issue of Forbes, as part of a cover package about consumer items that would always be recession-proof. His reels were true functional art.
