It's with a heavy heart that I convey the sad news of my good friend Bill Albright's passing. Billy passed away this morning (on his birthday, Sunday 22 November) after a long battle with cancer. Billy was not only my friend but my mentor for over 20 yrs. We travelled together and fished bass tournaments from the 1000 Islands to the Potomac River and just about every body of water in-between. More importantly we shared our love for the Pack (as Billy referred to Lake Wallenpaupack) and our love fishing (in particular) for Smallmouth bass. Whether it was fishing the Professional Bassmasters Tournament Trail (back in the day) or fishing a local tournament with friends, Billy enjoyed being out on the water fishing. And, it didn't matter what the weather was either..he'd fish in snow, sleet, hail, wind, rain, hot, cold. He just enjoyed fishing and guiding, and sharing his love/knowledge of bass fishing with anyone. If you have any photos of you and Billy email them to me at either: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and I'll post them on this page. To Billy, until we meet again my friend. Your pal, Rob
