Carl Richards died at a hospice in Grand Rapids, Michigan just before noon on Memorial Day of cancer complicated by congestive heart failure. He was the author (with Doug Swisher) of Selective Trout (1971) and Fly Fishing Strategy (1975). He also co-authored Stoneflies with Fred Arbona and Doug Swisher and helped Fred Arbona write and publish his Mayflies, the Angler And The Trout (1980).

As you can see, Carl was a big name in the world of trout flyfishing. He will be missed by many.
