I didn’t know where else to post this so figured it was most fitting here under the Wet Flies section due to Bergmans contribution to classic wet fly patterns . Since I first read his seminal Tome “Trout”, I’ve been a major devotee and adherent to his style of Flyfishing. To say that it has influenced me immensely -both in my own fishing And also, my personal life- is truly an understatement. Consequently, I had always endeavored to visit his grave and finally did so today , on a whim . I’ve included some pics of his grave and that if his wife and parents .
He’s buried in Oak Hill Cemetary , directly across the street from Nyack hospital . From his grave there’s a lovely view of the Hudson River , a very fitting final resting place for a truly great man and flyfishing legend . Rest In Peace Ray ....
