As many of you know, the late, great Charlie Meyers of the Denver Post was a mentor of mine. We fished together, wrote together, and told many stories along the way. Charlie had seemingly been everywhere in the fly fishing world, long before fly fishing travel was even a niche industry. And believe me, Charlie cut his own path. He walked away from a bush plane crash and once ventured up a jungle river to encounter a witch doctor (who cured a travel companion of shingles) on the Mosquito Coast of Nicaragua. He caught big tiger fish in Africa and of course, he did all the bonefish, permit, salmon, steelhead, etc., angles that most writers are recycling now.
