I will miss you Larry...Life long friend...we both had many common interests...our love of fishing was the main thing...our philosophies differed a bit on fishing...his was catch and share and take a tiny bit for himself and mine, is just to go wet the hook and get away from pressures of life and re-energize...
I'm mostly catch and release, but definitely keep fish that are large and follow
Larry's philosophy of share the catch if ever to catch a good, legal sized fish..we also listened to midnite radio talk shows, such as Ground Zero, with Clyde Lewis and Coast to Coast AM with George Noory...we would have friendly debates on anything and everything...Dammit Larry, I am going to miss you...May God bless and keep you at his side always....Good bye my dear friend...
