Dear new FAO Friends,

I am trying to learn more about the passing of once great friend and true fly fishing legend, the great Del Canty of Leadville, Colorado. Talk about making a solid impression on a young guy(me). I met Del at a ISE/International Sportsmens Expo in Denver in the early '80's and the photos of 20+ lb Browns/Bows from his Lunker Hunter tube while casting all night on large Western waters made me go lose sleep!! I lost contact with him and then later learned of his passing.

Anyone with info regarding the when he died, where, etc is most appreciated. I will never forget those precious moments when I sat with Del talking about technique, seasoned insight AND the incredible one's "that got away!"

Ahhh, the memories.
