Homer Circle: Outdoors Writer And Fishing Legend Passes

I just learned that Homer Circle, one of the most prolific fishing writers of our time, passed away yesterday.   Here’s a bit more on Uncle Homer’s life and amazing career.

The Fisherman’s Prayer
By Homer Circle

God grant that I may fish
until my dying day;

And when at last I come to rest,
I’ll then most humbly pray;
When in His landing net
I lie in final sleep;
That in His mercy I’ll be judged
as good enough to keep!

Safe to say, Uncle Homer will be a real keeper!  Rest In Peace, Homer…and God Bless the family who mourns your loss.
