    So shocked to hear of Conny’s passing, wondered why I hadn’t heard from her on my birthday only to find out that is the day she died , She would have been finally able to retire and draw widows pension from her husband. I will miss her dearly…

    I first met Conny when BASS started the WBT events. I even had the pleasure of fishing with her and always looked forward to listening to her wonderful and funny fish stories that she so often shared with many of us. Conny was one of the Ladies that you always looked forward to seeing at the next WBT event. She always had a smile and was such a joy to be around.
    With the end of the WBT events, I, like many of us lost touch with a lot of the Ladies, which is very sad. Geez, I miss the WBT trail, it was an avenue to keep in touch with old Friends and make new ones as well. Conny was one of those Ladies that made fishing the WBT events Special !! My thoughts and Prayers are with you my Friend !!

    I was shocked to read of Connie’s passing. She fished the women’s national tours with us for so many years. A great angler and friend…… my condolences to her family.
