The American Ambassador Salmon Fly
An homage to the U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom, the Honorable Joseph Hodges Choate, dressed by P. D. Malloch, and presented at the March 11th, 1902 dinner of the Fly Fishers' Club.  Interesting, that we create similar, patriotic flies almost a century later.  Wish that it had been a lithograph, instead of a plate, so that we could view it in red, white and blue.


Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after. - Henry David Thoreau
To him, all good things—trout as well as eternal salvation—come by grace and grace comes by art and art does not come easy. - Norman Maclean
