ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
Big fish ventures can be sought in either solitude or in good company. Most often, friends and
fellow fishermen provide for sparring, taking on any encounter with fish in talks and reflections
upon the fishing conditions, the flies being used and so on. Still, many of those magical moments do
seem to find way to the fisherman when he is alone, deeply engaged in his sport, blending in with
nature and for him to share later on: be that in a matter of minutes when rejoining the rest of a
scattered fishing party at rendezvous, or at a much later time getting together and sharing latest
experiences anew. Anyway, so has it been for me through the past decades. In this specific context, I
will mention but a few of the participants, if one would call them that, some of those persons who
have made me, as a participant, evolve in my approaches and practice.
My thanks go to my friend Paulo Behrens who is a fine fisherman and also introduced me to the
South American (or Golden) Dorado. Together we share perspectives on fly fishing in South
America. Mi amigo Jorge Bradanini who believes in this Dane and takes an idea further.
Those who have taken instructions from me in fly tying and fly fishing in a professional or informal
setting, evolving on their own pursuit.
I would like to give my thanks for support to: Adam Hutchison from R.L. Winston Fly Rod
Company. Carsten Jensen from Normark/Shimano, Denmark. Tine Fristrup, Aarhus University,
Copenhagen, Denmark. Veevus, Denmark.
Un agradecimiento especial a los argentinos que hoy conozco como amigos y conocidos, los que
han abierto las puertas a sus casas y vidas por este extranjero. Tenemos historias diferentes, y por lo
tanto, tambien perspectivas diferentes en unas cosas. Aunque puedo ser un desafío, y solo a veces,
porque soy Thor, siempre me llevaron mano en mano. Juntos cruzamos otro puente. Por eso
aprendí algo nuevo día a día y con tiempo he entendido más. Para mi esto es algo especial que está
conmigo siempre. Un abrazo grande de mi corazón.
Vamos a atar moscas.
