I just learned of Dennis’ passing this am ; sadly, he passed on 2/14. For those of us in the catskills who frequented his flyshop In Roscoe, he will be sorely missed. RIP Dennis ☹️

Sorry to hear this. A friend in a local shop is a special thing. I am sure he will be missed by many.

Posts: 29I agree. This is a loss and I will miss his wit, insight and his larger than life persona. Truly enjoyed watching him tie flies at the vice near front of shop and opportunity to learn about designs, and the fisheries.

Sorry for the loss to those who knew him. He sounds like a person who was well worth knowing.
