I visited Les yesterday. He is recovering from pneumonia and the aftereffects of the antibiotics. This on top of the massive strokes. Carol has been reading to him. Not novels, mind you, but short notes and email. If you have the time to send a card or email, I know Les would appreciate it and Carol would appreciate it for sure.

Thanks buddies,
Leland.

Does he know what goes on around him. Can he still talk.

I know strokes are a bad thing. Two of them took my dad. I saw what he looked like from the first one. It isn't a pretty site. He lost his writing and reading skill and had to be fed with a tube to his stomach.

Will try to knock something out later. I have to think on it first.

The greatest generation of fly anglers.

I had the incredible opportunity to meet and talk with Walt Johnson one time. Incredible angler and an even more incredible man.

Never got to meet Les Johnson but i like to think he was a good guy too.

I never met Les but would of liked to. I remember watching him in his TV series of fishing Washington. He seemed to always have fun doing what he loved best which was fly fishing. I watched one episode of him and another fishing Omak Lake. They were sight fishing for the big fish in the lake.

All I can say is get better. You need to get out there one more time to fool those fish.
