RIP – HAL HARVEY
img1

On Monday the fishing community lost a legend, and I lost a great mate and mentor. I first met Hal Harvey about 20 years ago and soon realised that he had forgotten more about fishing than I would ever learn. He was a pioneer, a leader and most importantly I am honored to be able to call him a great friend. He fought the fight so courageously and with a determination and will that I was in awe of. Sadly in the end, cancer had the final word.

Harvey Wallbanger, the great man, we will never forget you. Paul, Cristy & Jet Worsteling and the Tackle World Cranny & Morno team.
