Walt was one of the original great steelheaders.

I received this email this morning:

Our good friend Walt left us at 3:30AM this morning.

His spirit will flow in the bright waters of the North Fork forever.

Given that I consider the North Fork my home waters and ever since I first read about the storied tradition in Steelhead Water, I have been fascinated with the history of the river, this is truly a very sad passing but...

I must thank Walt for everthing that he contributed to the North Fork and steelheading as a whole.

Thanks Walt!!!
