I have read several posts tonight by friends of Rich Schaaff. He just passed away. I didn’t have the privilege of meeting Rich in person. He is described as an exceptionally nice man. Sometime back, I found his blog and was struck, awe struck, by the beauty of his work. Several of the fly fishing photographers of today inspire awe. Their work, for me, is often a glimpse of heaven’s gate on earth. Rich Schaaff’s work was truly inspiring in that light. East Fork Fly At peace now. . . .
