Remembering the Big Man

Hola Amigos -

A sad weekend as we learned news of the passing of E Street Sax player Clarence "The Big Man" Clemons. The Trout Buddha is a long time Springsteen and E Street fan. It is always sad to see someone go who has brought so much joy to so many. This photo is from the Fin Chaser Charters archive (May 2007). Got to love it.

I have always thought that fly fishing was steeped in faith, hope, and a sense of community. These are the very themes that permeate the songs of the E Street Band. Somewhere in heaven the Big Man has indeed "joined the band". Rest easy.
