    NEIGHBOR AND FRIEND
    A Legend And Fisher
    best of the old school
    BUD LILLY
    -------
    .. There's too much to say in a short blog note. The passing of Bud Lilly is a loss for all of us.
    GREG
    .. From the pioneering of genteel fishing around here, to the founding of the Federation Of Fly Fishers in his shop one night, there's a world of contribution that we have Bud to thank for.
    .. The newspapers are full of remembrances. Just search for his name.
    ANNETTE
    .. On a personal note we remember the times long past: Greg, Annette, the neighbors, and hanging out at the shop. Impromptu expeditions to a "new place" were always a kick in the pants. Thanks guys.
    .. The late 60's and early 70's seem so far away. They are. They were times of gentility, exploration, comradery, and Yellowstone. It hurts to remember.
    .. Our best wishes go to the family, especially to Greg and Annette. Thanks for the memories and the good times.
