Leon Chandler Passes Away

March 19, 2004 By: Marshall Cutchin

Late news is that another fly fishing great, Leon Chandler, has passed away. Leon was another pioneer of the sport of modern fly fishing, helping produce some of the first fly fishing films and contributing to development of the first fly line rating system, and worked for the Cortland Line Company for more than 50 years.
Fly Anglers Online has a decent piece on Leon’s life and contributions. (Thanks to David Dalu for this link.)
