Losing your fishing buddy

Recommended Posts

You know it really sucks when you lose one of your best fishing friends. Life is short. Shorter than i ever expected. I will always have great memories of spending time on the water, sitting by the fire, camping in remote locations, and sharing stories, thoughts, observations, and just being yourself, with my buddy. You almost take it for granted that we will be around forever, but then, just like that, it changes. Never will it be the same anymore. Times that you spent together are now a favorite memory, with no future trips or excursions planned as a result. 

I am not the first to lose a great friend, as we all do or will eventually, but my point is, cherish the times with your fishing buddy/s. Don't get bent out of shape if you have to wait to put in for your float, don't complain about the fish not biting, instead, take a breath, close your eyes and enjoy life. Be happy that you have someone that you can share time with doing the same things you like to do. Take a minute to tell your buddy how much you appreciate their friendship. 

I miss my friend Henry, who passed away last April. He was truly one of my very best friends, and to this day, i feel empty knowing there will never be any more fun times spent with him, just memories. When i do get out fishing or camping, he is always with me in spirit, but it will never be the same again. I know he would want me to continue on, carry on, and go on, but it is still tough without him.

Thanks for letting me post this, and please, enjoy and value your time with your buddy/s and always cherish them.

Sorry about your loss. Definitely we take things for granted, and can be thankful for the things we have, while we have them.

Wish you the best in your future fishing endeavors.

As we get older we do lose those we love. Sorry for your loss. I've lost a couple of fishing buddies dear to me over the years including a previous Admin of this site "Flytier". Memories and pictures are what we have thank goodness. If you have a picture of an old buddy you miss feel free to post it here.

Thanks for the reminder. I’ve really been caught in work stuff lately and all other facets of life have suffered. While sometimes it’s inevitable just to put food on the table, perspective is always important and this post helped me get a bit of it back. Sorry for the loss of your pal. Now a true skunk elimination for you requires 2 fish ;)

Sorry for loss Ralph. I lost my two best buds to cancer 3 years apart. The first who passed, Greg was my fishing Bud for many many years. I always think of him especially when fishing. Put quite a void in the life for a while.
