RIP Robert Hughes
« on: August 07, 2012, 12:49:41 PM »
Robert Hughes passed away in New York today at 74 years of age.
An avid hunter and fisherman, Robert was one of Australia's most popular Authors.
If you haven't read A Jerk on One End: Reflections of a Mediocre Fisherman (Library of Contemporary Thought) do yourself a favour.  It is a book which should be in every fisherman's library.

It's a bit wierd at times that people become more famous and their work more in demand AFTER they shuffle off.
