I first met Cody about 8 years ago while he was guiding at Selwyn Lake. On the very first day of our trip, he put my best friend on the Lake Trout of a lifetime, which ended up being the camp’s biggest that year. We’ve kept in touch ever since and always had great conversation when we ran into each other at tournaments.
From myself and everyone at MyCatch, rest easy to two of the best. Our thoughts are with your families and friends.”
The guys will be missed by all.
Our condolences to the families and friends as well as the walleye tournament brothers on this irreparable loss.
