I was surprised to hear of Alan's passing of "Small Streams Reflections"--my heart is broken to hear this because he was like a brother to me. I look forward every week to one of his inspiring posts concerning fly fishing, tasty meals, and colorful outdoor images. I felt he was the glue that held all of us bloggers together now, he's gone but not forgotten.
I'm thankful I have numerous flies and streamers he tied for me and my son Jason. I did a post some months ago concerning the colorful streamers he tied for Jason's Christmas a couple of years ago. My condolences to his wife Jennette and children
You are so fortunate to have some of his flies! He definitely will be missed. He was the leader of the pack, I believe. A very talented guy.ReplyDelete
I never met Alan in person but knew him long enough to admire his passion for the small stream environment & its lovely wild trout. You are fortunate, indeed, to hold & cherish some of his well-tied flies & other mementoes.ReplyDelete
A sad loss.ReplyDelete
I found Alan's blog years ago after Small Stream Reflections was featured on a network morning news program. I've followed it since. Yes, he will be missed.ReplyDelete
It was a very nice blog. Sorry to hear he passed.ReplyDelete
