R.I.P. Charlie Meyers

We’ll miss Mr. Meyers’ columns here at Coyote Gulch. He often wrote about successful recovery efforts in our Colorado streams. Of course successful was often defined as, “supports increased opportunities for fishing.” 🙂

Here’s the obituary from The Denver Post (Jason Blevins and John Meyer). From the article:

“He really was Huckleberry Finn,” said his son Kirk. “He was always that kid with a straw hat, cane pole and a worm exploring that next bend in a river. He always made me feel special because he’d rather see me catch the big fish or see the rest of us succeed. That’s who he was.”

Some Coyote Gulch posts that credit Mr. Meyers here and here.
