Thanks- I've fished in Yellowstone Park (Fire Hole) and other MT. waters (Big Horn, etc.) but never the Railroad Ranch. The late Ernest Hemingway fished Silver Creek in ID in the late 1930's- as guest of Averill Harriman at Sun Valley, but never read if he fished the Railroad Ranch sector of the Henry's Fork. Hemingway appreciated good fishing tackle, as he did his good quality firearms- Hardy Brothers seemed to have been his preferred rods, both for fly fishing, and also on his fishing boat, the Pilar. He used Hardy Perfect fly reels, and mainly Vom Hofe Salt Water reels on the Pilar. RWTF

My father gives the sign

And draws the slender curve
to land his fly
where a gold lip of water pools nearby,
and tugs the river’s wild nerve.

Beautifully written - you are lucky to have a daughter that has such an obvious affinity for the outdoors and incidental pursuits! I hope I am as fortunate. - Dan

He's cost me alot of money and time over the years (all well-spent IMHO)

His latest and arguably, his best so-far. His list of books is quite long, so... read at your own risk.


Indeed he does own a doublegun.

In one of his books, and I don’t remember which one, he wrote of pulling his old pickup truck up against the curb in one of those old Colorado towns slowly being converted to yuppiedom. As he stepped onto the sidewalk he was scolded by a ‘not from around here’ young woman about that “awful shotgun in his back window.”

His quick reply was “That’s no ‘shotgun’ lady, that’s a Parker!”

DAM16SXS: I vaguely remember that story too, but it's been so-long since I read it I can't remember where (Sex, Death & Flyfishing?). Suffice it to say that amongst other things, he's likely a practitioner of the fine art of shotgunning as well.

Based on Cahill’s visit to his study/gun room/man cave I’d say there’s no doubt.
