My wife and I got out for some crappie fishing on mother's day. I was fishing an Al Campbell pattern - crappie candy. It made me think back to meeting Al at the Rapid City Scheels store in the late 1990s. I had recently moved to SD and quickly discovered the fishing in the black hills. Al was a big help to me in getting started fishing in the hills. I love his fly patterns - typically very simple to tie and very effective at catching fish. His fly tying tutorial on FAOL is an outstanding resource. Thanks Al!
