Dr. Lenox Dick 1916-2008

From The Fly Fishing Shop in Welches Weekly Newletter 2/17/08

A treasured friend, Lenox Dick passed away peacefully and apparently at his own wish after a short hospital stay several weeks ago. Len's notable list of accomplishments included being a founding member of the Fly Fishers Club of Oregon, author of many fly fishing articles & the book The art & Science of Fly Fishing. He was perhaps the oldest person to row his drift boat through White Horse Rapids when he was 86 years old. At 91,he was still scrambling up and down the steep banks of the Deschutes on his stretch above Maupin. The fly fishing community will miss him.
