The Fisherman I Knew

A moving tribute by Dominic Carnazzo

Jan. 16, 2013:  GBF co-founder and Past President Bill Carnazzo suffered a massive stroke and passed away this week.  Bill was a master fly tyer, conservationist and renowned fly fishing guide and educator on N. California trout streams. He was a tremendous human being and will be sorely missed.  Our condolences are with Bill’s family.

The Fly Tyer’s Corner is a monthly column in The Leader, GBF’s monthly newsletter.

Since Bill left us with a wealth of fly patterns in the Fly Pattern Archives, we will continue to offer them as the Fly of the Month pattern, selecting an appropriate pattern for the time of year.
