RIP Fish Doc

Just heard about this on other board. Sad to hear T&PS

Good guy. I remember being excited to be getting a pile of AYC from him when I was starting out and had been turning just crap pine and poplar.

Sorry to hear this. I finally got around to turning a few plugs this weekend and was actually using some of the 2x2 white cedar I'd gotten from him at a plugfest long ago..

sorry to hear this

The United States Constitution does not exist to grant you rights; those rights are inherent within you. Rather it exists to frame a limited government so that those natural rights can be exercised freely.

Doc was a first class guy. Full of stories of fishing in Alaska with his boys. I got a good bunch of wood from him also. Back when the PlugFest was held at the Rod&Gun in Carver. RIP Dick.
