Default Re: Colorado Legend- DEL CANTY

I hadn't heard, but I'm checking. I fished with him a few times in the 80's, listened to his stories a bunch of times, learned from his tips, and really admired him, especially when I was a young teen when he was fishing the Gorge and Colorado hard and often. He always shared his "secrets" with me if I asked. As a Flaming Gorge resident for the last 20+ years, I still think of him when I look to or fish the wind-blown Antelope Flat shoreline where he caught many of his giant fish from here. I can see him bobbing about in the tube, walking up the shoreline or ramp soaking wet, but covered in "rubbers" and duck fins. What a guy. He'll be missed, but never forgotten.
