I only got to meet Bee this past summer up at Big Eddy, through my good friend, Ozzie Ozefovich. He and Margaret were such a pleasure to be with. They shared many stories of days gone by. And Bee gave me some helpful fishing advice along with a few Maple Syrup flies.
To Margaret and all his family members, please accept my condolences.
