Larry Bowser 1935 – 2013

One of the most creative guys I’ve ever known, my good friend and long time fishing partner Larry Bowser passed away recently. Larry was one of the first people I met at Hallmark when I went to work there in 1960. We fished together from 1960 until the last few years when Larry’s health deteriorated.

Long ago, while fishing a strip pit near Pleasanton, KS, Larry caught a large bass (the first of many) and I caught a big catfish while fishing for crappie with an ultra light spinning rod and 16th oz. jig. From then on we often referred to ourselves as “Larry Lunker and Catfish Cochran”.

So the ongoing saga of “Larry Lunker and Catfish Cochran” has finally come to a close.

I will always miss him.
