Their lives followed similar, though different, paths. Pat Barnes and Dan Bailey were the ''Old Pros.'' Unlike many of the modern-day fishing crowd, they were more interested in trout than in money, interested in the peole who fly fished for trout, the streams that housed the trout, and the land through which those streams flowed.
The Old Pros loved fly fishing long before it became trendy: before it was important to be well-dressed, use the best gear, fish the best rivers throughout the world with the best fishing guides. Pat and Dan were conservationists before most people thought much about conservation. Collected are their rich stories and valuable wisdom.
