Tom Rosenbauer - author of The Orvis Guide to Prospecting for Trout: How to Catch Fish When There's No Hatch to Match, The Orvis Fly-Tying Guide, and a whole host of other titles - is a prolific writer, a patient teacher, and an accomplished fly tyer and angler. And while he may know his stuff, he's also a first rate goober.
As evidence of Tom's gooberitude, I offer the following Orvis promotional video.
If you're not a fly tyer (and you should be) it really is a good sale on quality flies. Still, I find Tom's gooberishness hard to dismiss.
Sorry Tom ... you're just a little over the top.
