From Attitudinally, one mile south of Lake LeBoeuf
Ardent Pennsylvania conservationist and former President of PA TU Bob McCullough passed away last week at the age of (I believe...) 84. He was a lifelong resident of the Williamsport area, an uncompromising advocate for the well being of the woods and waters of the Commonwealth and an expert night angler for big trout in the Loyalsock and Lycoming Creeks.
You may have never heard of Bob McCullough. But, if you've enjoyed the hatches and the fishing on Pine Creek below the Gorge over the past couple of decades, it isn't too much to say that you owe Bob a debt of gratitude. He was a tireless leader in the efforts that resulted in a settlement with the Antrim Mining Company that led to the reclaiming of the Babbs Creek watershed and put a virtual end to the deadly slug of AMD that entered Pine by way of Babbs for so many years, depressing the insect life and fishery from Blackwell downstream.
Bob was a lion for the resource, cut from the same cloth as Ralph Abele and Doc Goddard.
He'll be missed..
