A sad farewell to JiggerJohn


Oct 9, 2016
John passed suddenly today. I loved reading his wonderful articles when he wrote for Fishing Facts Magazine. For over a year we've been corresponding and sharing ideas when it came to lure design and innovation. His emails were a pleasure to receive and I'm glad I gave him great pleasure sending him many of the lures I made he wanted to try and then caught fish with. Thankfully he caught so many fish this year, especially catfish, up until recently when the weather was prohibitive.

The man had a way with words like no other and to me, personally inspirational. It's like I've known him all my life and have lost the best fishing buddy and closest friend anyone could have.

Rest in peace John and keep catch'n 'em!
