I always enjoyed reading his Ask Uncle Homer column all those years.

Here is the article from the FLW website ....

and if you google his name you'll find more than you can read!

I read about this last week. Sad.  :(  Seems like he has been around forever.

Saw it last week.   He was 97 so he has been around for a while :)

After reading his stuff for all these years it almost feels like we knew the guy personally.

I'll tell you what he meant to me.  About 30 some odd years ago I was fishing for crappie, white bass, black bass, cats, trout, etc.  Nothing much was working so I picked one   BLACK BASS.  I went to the library and checked out all of the magazines they would let me have.  I read them from cover to cover and took notes.

After a few months I picked black bass and Homer C. was the most knowledgeable guy around.   I read everything that he wrote both current and in the historic files at the library.   Some of it was regional specific but a lot of it was general.

Thanks Uncle Homer.
