Another Birthday Greeting To Lefty From Flip

A note from Flip Pallot:

Over many, many years. Lefty and I played a game of hiding small gifts or tokens, for no special reason or occasion, in places where the other would find them. Often in luggage, clothing, the pages of books, in vehicles, or tackle bags. We never exchanged Birthday presents, or the formal giving of presents. It was much better, not to see a gift coming through the woods!!!

On Birthdays, we’d call each other early in the morn, discuss what the day would be, or talk of Birthdays gone by or to come…

In later years, Lefty became enamored of texting. We texted daily…’lots of jokes. I could never come up with one he did not know!

After his death, I continued to text him for a year and a half, until they gave his number to someone else, who didn’t appreciate my texts ?
I have continued to e-mail him, all along, just in case they’re getting through, somehow.
Today is Lefty’s Birthday…You can bet I’ll be sending a joke and the day’s itinerary so that he’ll be up to date when I catch up with him…..FP

We’d love to share a film put out last year by our friends at The American Museum of Fly Fishing and Flylords honoring Lefty and the memories that still last with fellow TFO Advisors Flip Pallot, Bob Clouser, and Blane Chocklett. Check out TIME below.
