The Millers River Lost A Friend

On Tuesday, March 18 the Millers River lost one of it's dearest friends with the passing of Bob Rouleau. Bob was an accomplished fly fisher, an accomplished fly tyer and the link to the "days of yesteryear". Bob began fishing the Millers back in the 1930's and was a wealth of information on what the river was like before pollution closed the river down in the mid 1950's. His 3lb brookie from the Millers was immortalized in Ted Williams's (the noted conservation writer) 1970 article about the Millers in Massachusetts Wildlife Magazine. Above all that, Bob was a gentleman and one of the nicest people I have ever met.

He will be sadly missed.
