Walter "Bud" Glsssmoyer III, 67, died while fishing Pine Creek at Slate Run in Lycoming County on Monday, April 20, 2015 with his sister, Charlene. It was no coincidence that was just after 'Opening Day' in northern PA. Bud dearly loved fly fishing.
A lifetime member of Donegal TU since 1999, Bud made many contributions to the chapter over the years. He was a skilled fly tyer and his ties were exceptional examples of the art. He donated his ties freely to many of our events, not least the Spring Banquet. He had recently donated over 2-dozen flies to our Fourth Ladies Cold Water Conservation Breakfast so they could be given to the participants as mementos. He happily shared his knowledge of tying, especially at our youth events.
Bud was an exceptional man, and his presence among us will be missed.
