Default Denny Hannah dead at 71

For tomorrow's paper:

Denny Hannah, an icon of southern Oregon fishing, died early Sunday in a Spokane, Wash., hospital of complications from lung disease. He was 71.
Hannah was a career fishing guide in Oregon and more recently in Petersburg, Alaska, for 39 years and mentored many of todayís southern Oregon guides. He also put the UmpquaRiver on the map with itís nationally famous smallmouth bass fishery.
Services are set for noon Saturday at the Elkton Baptist Church, about half an hour west of Interstate 5 between Eugene and Roseburg on Oregon 38.

Doggone it...

So Sad. Denny was a legend in the fishing world. I fished around him a number of years on the south coast. Him and my dad went back many years in the guides and packers Assoc..

My prayers and thoughts go out to him and his family.
