    If anyone has some good pics of Norm from fishing, conservation events or any events please post hi resolution versions of them here. I'm going to put together a poster board/collage for his wife Tammy. I think she'd really appreciate that. Also, If anyone could help chip in a bit and or share his go fund me link that would be helpful and appreciated. For as many views as the post got It hasn't gotten as much traction as I thought it would. Thanks! https://dm2.gofund.me/4fzunp-norm-minas

  8. Norm Minas' Wife needs our help

    Just had a very sad conversation with Tammy Norms wife and I'm really hoping we can all step up in Norms honor to help take the financial burden off his wife. His extended sickness, hospital time and treatments were not all covered by insurance and she will not be eligible to receive his pension until she turnes 60 which is 2.5yrs from now. I want to see if as many ISA members as possible can come together and chip in to take some of the financial stress off of her during this tough time. If everyone could donate to the cause, I know they'd appreciate it. https://www.gofundme.com/4fzunp-norm-minas Best regards, John
  9. Some Sad News

    That's heavy news..... we've lost a great one. I learned an immense amount from my time and conversations with him about fishing and life. The sadness of this is lessened because I know his suffering is finally over. I find solice in knowing he'll be looking down on all of us with a smile when we step into the river to tug of war with the almighty smallmouth...... something tells me a part of his spirit will always be with me when I step into his home water. "peace"
  10. old infisherman magazines , any interest

  12. Gear ratio too slow for rivers?

    Hook sets for me difffer in several ways per situation and hook type.... and like norm said eliminate slack and when they surface to shake the hook put the rod tip in the water to keep them under the surface....
