We still miss "Flaptail" 8 years today!

Today is the 8th anniversary of Steve's passing. The years are just melting away and "Flaptails" loss is as evident today as it was 8 years ago. He was a great guy and a good friend and he is missed. RIP Steve.

Almost time to get our fish on!!!

A good run is better than a bad stand!

Yes. Some losses are harder than others. This one counts.

Think of him often as many do and much like others who have passed on , he is one of the people I still learn from. RIP Steve

Thanks Larry for reminding us about the loss of a good person who passed way too soon. Eight years have gone by and it still doesn't seem real.

I never really talked to Steve, but I used to see him all the time. He was always the guy I was going to talk to tomorrow. Then I ran out of tomorrows. That whole beach crew is fading fast....RIP Steve.

Steve was a great person who had interest in a lot of people and a lot of things
From reading his reports in otw to plugfest etc Steve is missed dearly
Steve was a wealth of info towards fishing and lures , he would talk about freshwater up in the Worcester hills or Stripers on the Cape or how bassmaster dressed 😎. Miss him in the lure world for sure.
