For those of you that knew Brian he passed yesterday from a heart attack fighting a Salmon at Westport. He took me river fishing many times in my early 20's and taught me a lot about fishing, patients, and a undying love for the sport. RIP

I didn't ask him which boat he was going on when I talked to him on the 4th of July, but he did go out on the Tequila Too often.

I have fished side by side with Brian in a certain river many times. Usually just our two boats.....that always made it great!!! RIP Brian
Defiantly a good dude and was always friendly... even when @mrfish11 would low hole him.... I can’t wait to get the plugs dancing for him this winter. RIP

I feel very sorry for your loss, but am I to understand that he died while fighting a fish?

In its own way, that is very impressive.
