“Of course, now I am too old to be much of a fisherman, and now of course I usually fish the big waters alone, although some friends think I shouldn’t. Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening.

Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise.

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.

I am haunted by waters.”

He had a boat with 900 hp on it at age 80 and made the secret service chase him around the Atlantic.
Rest easy,

He was a good Man.
His son was a class act at the Funeral and also as President.
He is home with his wife now.
Rest in Peace 41.
You will not be forgotten.

He seemed like a "class act" all around and he was good friends with our Prime Minister, Brian Mulroney  (who gave an eulogy at his funeral). I talked to a guy who met him on a river in the Queen Charlotte islands where he was fishing for coho and he said that he was a super nice guy and very friendly to talk too. He was going over over to talk to him but was stopped by the security detail but 41 told them to let him come over so they could chat.

Heaven is a better place having him there.  There was a political cartoon floating around showing him landing his WW II plane in the clouds and Barbara and his daughter Robin standing there saying "we have been waiting for you"....a very moving statement....a real kick to the feelings... RIP sir.

Hell, if I'd jumped on all the dames I'm supposed to have jumped on, I'd have had no time to go fishing.
