George Grant, famous Montana fly tier passed away on Sunday, November 2, 2008 at the age of 102. Grant was famous for his woven hair-hackled stoneflies, for founding the Big Hole River Foundation, conservation efforts on the Big Hole and for his two rare books: The Master Fly Weaver and Montana Trout Flies. I will write more on Grant when I get a chance.
Condolences to his family. May his spirit rest in peace on his beloved Big Hole River. I hope to see him in the morning mist making a cast, playing a trout and then slipping out of sight on his favorite bend.
