Al Caucci & Bob Nastasi
Recognized in tandem, together, they bestowed the fly fishing community with five major fly fishing books. Their first book Hatches, 1975 provided the fly fishers with the most detailed and complete guide to identifying and fishing the may fly hatches of North America. They are also responsible for the standardization of colors in fly tying, an easy to use Instant Mayfly Identification Guide, and the development of the Compara-fly patterns (from Al’s Comparadun creation). Bob Natasi died in 2004.
