Homage to Charlie Meyers

October 14, 2012 By: Erin Block

Published posthumously in 2010, Charlie Meyers’s co-authored The Little Red Book of Fly Fishing (with Kirk Deeter) is quickly becoming a classic. And putting many of those 250 tips to good use,  Scott Willoughby and Deeter head to the South Platte “Dream Stream” section which was dedicated and named in Meyer’s honor.

“I look at it like a graduate school fishery. If you can do it here, you can do it anywhere,” Deeter writes. “And I think Charlie would be psyched about that, actually. It’s like the graduate school building on campus. To me, it smacks of reverence for someone who understood the technical intricacies of fly-fishing to a tee.”
