I am very saddened to announce that the Metro Reservoir Anglers lost one of it's longest standing members and best guys today, Mr. Butch Wilson. Butch passed away early in the morning on Saturday, January 3rd.
Butch was a longtime bass fisherman and tournament angler. He will forever be remembered sitting in the back seat of Larry Barger's boat and bringing in those big bags of bass to the scales. Together, Butch and Larry were one of the all-time leading teams in the MRA. You knew the tournament was never over until they weighed their fish.
There are no plans for a memorial service at Butch's request. Instead, just think fondly of one of the nicest guys to ever grace the reservoirs and remember him the next time you land a fish.
