To the man who taught me fishing was just fishing. The man who taught me artifical,live bait, fly fisherman are all just fisherman chasing the same dream. The one who had the guts to call out fly fisherman and the new found arrogance that surrounded them. As an accomplished flyfisherman he could do that. A great teacher. He showed his failures as much as his success. In a time where egos dominated the television fishing scene Tred aired his failures as well as his successes. He laid it out there. We as an audience got to watch him go from healthy outdoorsman to struggling and over come being wheel chair bound. The man was a legend. In is last facebook post he was looking for a small town with a good deer population and a good church to settle into. He had lost all his close friends and was looking for the same dream most of us chase. I suggest everyone read his last facebook post it puts alot into perspective. This was 9 days before he was killed in an auto crash. Good bye Tred.
