On June 28 I delivered a mostly ad-libbed lecture on fly-fishing at the historic and airless South Canaan Meeting House in Falls Village, Conn.

Sweating bullets, I stammered my way through the hour, and then did a little impromptu casting demo afterwards.

Brooks blazer, JAB StaysCool SuperDuper white buttondown, madras tie, baggy Bill's poplins, and dirty bucks. Rod is the Lunker Clunker, a nine-foot eight-weight piece of lumber from Cabelas, which cost about $89 shipped with a case, reel and line. You buy it cheap, you don't weep.
