Fly fishing legend Billy Pate passes away.

Billy Pate a legendary tarpon fisherman passed away April 18 at the age of 81. He was a remarkable angler and someone that inspired me to first want to fish for Tarpon. My first recollection of him was in a video clip from a Scientific Anglers 3M video that I saw at Kiene's about 15 years ago. His manic pursuit of "larrge Tarrrpon" as he used to say in a southern drawl led him to become an expert's expert. He frequented the Florida Keys and everglades and his boat with large custom casting platform with foam covered pipes bouncing down the road also became legendary.
