Most of his reels will probably outlive all of us. RIP
My passion for catching fish is eclipsed only by the fish's passion not to be caught.

Sunrise, Sunset....

RIP Billy Pate. I bought a BP Tarpon Reel on sale. I'll use it in a couple of weeks and offer a toast.

Great teacher Great Innovator Learned a lot from reading his articles, books and watching the videos.

Tarpon will definitely swim easier now.
