We were company to an unfortunate passing of our good friend and fisherman Bill Colson this past week. I am sure Bill's wife appreciated the support that everyone showed by stopping by and expressing condolences. I personally regret not knowing about Bill's former life as a forester, before getting into reel repair after retirement. He always had a good story about how things were back in the 19whatevers.
I probably can count on one hand the number of meetings Bill missed over the four years I have been in the club, he was always consistent in his support of the club. He will be sorely missed.
