Thanks Max!

A couple of weeks ago when the DeBruce Fly Fishing Club and the Beaverkill Club hosted our vets on the Willowemoc and the Beaverkill, one of the local elementary schools had their students create a very special card for each of us.  I was honored to get one from Max.  Thanks buddy! I love your Rainbow trout drawing...and yes I caught a few!

Fish Hook

According to my research, the fish hook has been around for a while and holds a pretty important place in the history of mankind.  Yep, according to what I read, in 2005, the fish hook was chosen by Forbes as one of the top twenty tools in the history of man!

The oldest, found in Palestine, is believed to be about 9,000 years old - which seems reasonable in that the 1st verse in Job 41 asks, " Canst thou draw out leviathan with a hook?"

Well, this one is a bit newer.  Hand carved in wax and cast in Sterling Silver, my version is unlikely to catch a leviathan, but it'll look pretty good hangin' around your neck from an 18 inch braided leather choker.

Shoot me an email if you'd like more info on it.
