Harry Lemire passed last night at home in his sleep after a long struggle and a what can only be described as a "Great Life". He was a long time freind and a great person outside of his legendary angling personna. He will be missed by all who knew him.

I've met him on the upper Green and at flyshops. He always struck me as the kind of steelheader I might grow to become someday, if I was lucky. RIP

Drinking with Harry a few times, the stories of rods, reels, lines and steelhead were as good as they get. I will always remember Harry as a special person in our world of steelheading. Harry may you fish in peace.

My favorite Harry story was his about his Youth wandering urban streets back east with a "sling shot and a salt shaker and a few matches" with his gang of hungry young kids always on the lookout for pigeons and squirrels. (Harry always was "Hungry" I actually saw him eat 4 Costco cart dogs in one sitting,)
