Stan Bogdan passed away peacefully last night. I am sure many of you have his reels.....I wish I did. I met Stan on the Grand Cascapedia 2 seasons ago. He was an absolute joy to be around. Such a great guy, with many great selfless stories. The best story was how he branded his name and reel back in the old days. He was a true Renaissance Man! RIP Stan.

I met him dropping off reels at UPS and occasionally at shows in Marlboro where he was usually walking around cameo. There were some attractive ladies working at UPS and they loved him.

The flyfishing world is better because of him and he lived a life we'd all envy I'm sure.

RIP Mr.Bogdan

For my 50th birthday many reels ago, I gifted my self with a Bogdan. A treasure.

There's a book about him: Hilyard, Grayson R, _Bogdan_, Amato Publications, ISBN 1-57188-398-3. An enlightened look at a remarkable man. Wish I could have met him.
