Good friend and fishing buddy Pete Priepke passed away on September 2nd after a long battle with cancer. Pete was the one that got me interested in coastal cutthroat trout and he is also the one who tied his own special version of the Reverse Spider that is now very popular with many cutthroat trout fly fishers.
Pete was a mainstay at River City Fly Shop `for many years and could always be counted on to give advice and direction to new fly fishermen who came into the shop. Pete was also the longtime president of Washington County Fly Fishers.
So long old friend! I am going to miss you
