Rob G Posted December 11, 2017 Report Share Posted December 11, 2017 Just wanted to mention that a long standing member of the ISA and a good friend to all down here in central IL passed away yesterday. Dave Franklin, aged 74, will be truly missed. Dave was a long standing regular at all of our central IL ISA fly tying gatherings and fishing events. Six years ago Dave came over to our East Central IL ISA outing that I was hosting and asked if I would accompany him back up the Salt Fork river where he had many years before, landed his first 20" smallie. Only too happy to spend the day fishing with the man, I agreed and so the two of us set off to cover miles of water and yet we were to land very few fish on that occasion. It was just one of those days, but Dave never complained once, he just continued on fishing with that big smile on his face, reassuring me that he was just happy to be able to walk that water again. And that my friends is exactly the type of gentleman that he was. Gonna miss you Dave ! 035c by robow 77 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
