I remember Monty very well. I'm sure he was responsible for getting more of us into herps than we would like to admit. A lot more could be achieved back then without resorting to the Hollywood herping we see now. I suppose that can be chalked up to the cliche of those being simpler times.
That being said, I shudder to think of the lengths they'll go to 20 years from now when these times are being fondly recalled as the simpler ones.
Revenge is a dish best served cold...
With a side plate of steaming entrails,
And a nice Bordeaux!
