First and foremost, I was extremely saddened to hear about Billy a few years ago when he passed. In saying what I'm about to say, please don't think that I'm acting like Billy was my best friend or anything like that.

My father-in-law, Ed Blackburn, and I fished many tournaments at Fork for a long time. Billy and Kay fished many of the same events. Sometimes we beat them and sometimes they beat us. Standing around in the crowds after the events were over, there was not a nicer, outgoing, warmer, friendly spirit there than Billy Dyson. He was always the first to congratulate the winners and he was truly happy for them, never just lip service talk. When He and Kay won, he acted like it was just the luckiest, ho-hum thing and that they were the last people on the lake that should've won. He told you what they did and where they did it and I really don't think he was BSing. He was truly a gentleman and there was not a finer person to be found.

To say I know him was only because we fished alot of the same events and stood around afterwards enjoying a beer or whatever he had in his cup. I never went to their Lake Fork home or anything like that. However, he sure had a way of making you feel like you were welcome there and that he was one of your best friends. He also had a huge presence here on TFF and his cordial, welcoming, level-headed style of posting is truly missed here these days. We could surely use more people in this world like him.

Billy is truly missed and I hope that Kay is doing well.

Rescue Fire I have to chime in. Met the man 2 times for maybe an hour each. He had a way of making you feel like a friend right from the beginning. Surely made the fishing community a better place.

If there is any way I can be at this, I will. Billy fought the ultimate fight against this horrific disease. I will never forget him.

We could kick it down the road to Sunday, December 11. Thoughts?

Hey there,
I checked with Lake Fork Marina and Mark Howard and both are available on December 11th too. We'd like to pick a day that works for the majority and the 27th isn't looking very good.
Let me know what you think about the 11th.
