In Memory of Bill O'Kelly
Bill was a long time member of SPFF and a past President. He was an avid fly fisherman and had traveled extensively to try his luck and skill against the wiley trout. He was always helpful to beginning fishing students, and gladly shared his extensive knowledge of the sport with all who asked him questions.
Here we see him dressed up in full fly fisher regalia - waders and boots, chest pack for flies and small stuff, typical fishing shirt and hat, with a float tube behind him. This event was at a presentation for SPFF's Introduction to Fly Fishing (ITFF) program in response to the question "What do I need to go fly fishing?".
Bill was good friend to all and will be sorely missed by the membership.
