Bob was a client of mine, would come in to my office and talk fishing for hours. Bummed that I will be out of town that weekend. I hope it's a very successful event.

Did bob pass away?? I used to chat him up over at blackmans lake and various places. Sad to hear he is gone if that is indeed the case.

Yes he lost his battle with cancer the end of April this year. Great guy with a ton of knowledge.

Be careful posting about the Wallace. Last year I posted it was open and thought everyone was going to lose their mind! You know because its so super secret... haha
