I've know John for a long time but only recently got to spend some quality time with him on our shared trip to Brazil this past January. John was a prince of a guy and I totally enjoyed being on that trip with him. We really bonded. Of course I've seen him in his little skiff all over the delta and we always took a few minutes to catch up on the water.
After our Brazil trip we swore to fish together this coming fall on the delta. I was looking forward to it. I too feel a huge sense of loss at John's passing; but I'm profoundly grateful that we did get to spend some quality time together in Brazil. John was a helluva good angler and a very genuinely nice person. He'll be missed by so many.
Rest in peace John; and thanks for the friendship and fond memories.
