Default Re: A moment of silence

I didn't... I'm still fishing, but so out of the loop regarding what happens on the world wide fishing scene that the first I heard was reading bmoody's post above.

I'm saddened ... not so much for the man himself, because he'd lived a long and (from what I gather) fulfilling life and achieved great success as both a fisherman and a lure maker/manufacturer, but that someone who had a very significant influence on how I understand marlin fishing with lures has departed. Bart discussed the technique and theory of artificial lure fishing (other types of fishing as well, but primarily lure fishing) in greater detail and more unreservedly here in this forum than in any of the articles I've read. Those who couldn't go fishing with him or speak to him personally could still - and still can - get his take on particular fishing situations and approaches from his posts here. They are as much a part of his legacy as his lures themselves - arguably an even more important part, for we all know that buying, owning or even using a Bart lure, or any other lure made by or designed by a celebrated fisherman, won't automatically make you a great fisherman yourself, whereas by putting his techniques in practice, his experience and philosophy continues to live on. Despite being one of the best known lure manufacturers, Bart was unselfish enough to explain here on this forum how to make a particular style of lure that I really liked and which he used to make a lot of in the old days. A great part of my enjoyment and satisfaction in fishing comes from using lures I make myself, so this was a gesture I was, and remain, personally grateful for.

So... I am sorry that one of the great names of the sport has passed, but glad to have had the opportunity to have benefited from his knowledge in those aspects of marlin fishing that fascinated and continue to fascinate me the most. Adeus capitao.
