Some of you who have commented on my blog before may have seen comments from "Atlas". He was one of the first people to consistently read and comment on my blog other than family and friends. He just seemed like an all around nice guy, and a skilled fly fisherman. Just the kind of guy I would enjoy spending a day on the river with. He kept a very nice blog called The Rogue Outdoors. If you haven't checked it out do it now: atlasfishing.blogspot.com. I always enjoy reading his posts.
I was startled today to read today on Pond Stalker that he has passed away. He was still a young man. My condolences go out to his friends and family.
I regret not being able to meet him.
