Sorry to hear...
Yup, if I really wanted to get to the water on time I wouldn't stop at the WB when Tim was there. My wife quickly learned that if I said I was going to make a quick run to the fly shop (2 min away) she should expect me to be gone for at least an hour. The man could talk!
My sincere condolences to you all. I met Tim once and never forgot him.
I will now pull two flies out of my box that he tied for me showing me and effective technique to tie on crystal flash or other long fibers to build a body for baitfish patterns. I think I'll keep those two safe, or would it be better to fish them in his memory and lose them appropriately?
Sorry to hear of the passing, what a truly amazing story though. My condolences to his families, friends, acquaintances.
I didn't know him personally, but I'll bet he'd want you to keep on tossing those flies!
Very sad to hear. I knew Tim from working with PHW, always would stop in the shop on trips up to E'burg to fish with the troops. He always had a report to give us, and a hot tip on a fly. He'll be missed, another person we've lost that will affect the flyfishing community.
RIP Timbo. You have and will continue to be a legend on the Yakima.
One for Tim. Ella and I hit the lake in memory of our friend. He always had an extra peacock feather for her.
Really neat guy, bought a hat from him while passing through Ellensburg a few days before Christmas. He was doing inventory and talked my ear off about where to find winter fish on the Yakima and all of the science behind it. It felt like attending my own personal Life History of the Yakima River Rainbow Trout lecture. I left thinking, man I'd like to hang out with that gentleman for a few days on the river.
Mods. Can we get this thread stuck up there at the top as well?
Fish one and keep the other. That way you can do/have both.
Kevin, I hope you don't mind me poaching this pic that you posted on the WB facebook page.
Tim Pioneered the flat brimmed hat fashion
He was a great guy
He was the old guy at the WB? Man he talked my ear off for an hour last time I was in there, good guy it seemed, made sure to stop and give him the report. Glad I did.
