Lost a great friend

Post by dennis »

I took the news hard this morning, hearing that the fly fishing community had lost one of its best mentors! Chris Helm was an exceptional man, a prolific fly tier, and a gentle heart! I will miss you my friend, and thank you for all your contributions to make me not only a better tier but also a better person!

Chris was as helpful and knowing as they come--and it's an understatement to say that guy knew deer hair like nobody else on earth.

He is missed big time,

I read that today with a heavy sigh. He was one good dude. I did business with him at his whitetail fly shop, and he never steered me wrong. I used to call in my orders so I could talk to him.I told him I was learning how to tie irrestibles,and he sent me one of his.It looked so perfect that I don't fish with it I use it for a model.Really gonna moss that guy.
