Lee Wulff

No man had a greater impact on American tackle, lures and fishing tactics than Lee Wulff.  He shared his expertise in a lifetime of lectures, publications, film productions, and in later life, at his fly fishing schools with Joan on the Beaverkill.  He loved to solve angler problems and to undertake challenges, like exploring wilderness waters in his small plane, catching large fish on light tackle, and tying tiny flies in his fingertips.  Early in his career, more than 60 years ago, Lee was a lone voice, urging anglers to enjoy their fishing but “to come home empty-handed” because “game fish are too valuable to be caught only once.”
