    Damn Bob,

    I am so very sorry to hear this. I don't what to say. While we never got to fish together, fishing is what allowed our paths to cross. We did try to fish together just never worked out. The events we were at were always fun. I wish you all the best in the future. I know you'll do fine. Try to stay in touch if you can.

    bob, thanks for replying to my steelhead questions. hope all goes well for you. maybe some day someone will develop a southern strain of steelhead with a run up the indian or banana rivers. can you imagine fishing for chromers without snow or cold? enjoy your winter there and good luck to you.
