>Ernest Hemingway's Foreword to A Fly Fisher's Life by Charles Ritz
Charles Ritz is one of the very finest fishermen I know. He is not only
a great fly fisherman for trout and salmon but he is an articulate writer
and a splendid technician.
He is also an iconoclast who never hesitates to destroy an idol in order
to deal only with true and important facts.
Because he is a charming companion he does not bore a non-technical
reader with his knowledge. But it is there like a mine of true information
for anyone with the desire and the intelligence to work it.
Fishing with Charles Ritz you come to know the streams of Normandy
and Austria and the salmon rivers of the North.
As the world is run now few people can fish as far as Monsieur Charles
fishes. No matter how it is run even fewer people could ever fish as well.
