You'll be missed Sammy! (Slammin' Salmon)
« on: July 17, 2023, 11:43:37 AM »
Sam Baird of Slammin' Salmon Guide service passed away. Sure enjoyed fishing with him. Always enjoyed receiving and dishing out crap when encountering Sam on the water. He was always willing to share his tricks to success, an Antipro for sure. Fishing lost a great ambassador. Hard to believe he is gone...He will be greatly missed.

Used to BS with him at the Sportsman's Shows every year.  He'll be missed for sure.

Gary
One does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted. If one were to present the sportsman with the death of the animal as a gift he would refuse it. What he is after is having to win it, to conquer the surly brute through his own effort and skill with all the extras that this carries with it: the immersion in the countryside, the healthfulness of the exercise, the distraction from his job. ~ Jose Ortega y Gasset

Sammy was a good hunter, a great fisherman, and an exceptional friend. My wife and I loved him like family. Heartbroken doesnít even begin to describe it.

RIP brother.

He always left me laughing after talking with him.  He had a big voice on the river and you could always hear him when making a pass.  Hopefully his wife keeps making his bait scents.  If your on the Eastern Washington fishing page they are selling his antipro stickers and 100% of the proceeds go to his wife.
Cut em!
It's not the shells!  It's the shooter!
