Walter was the very first fisherman I interviewed during my creel survey of the Tellico and North Rivers in 1995-96. I watched him catch three fish from one pool as I walked up to him. I asked how many he had caught so far and he told me 35-40. I did not doubt it for a minute. Over the next few years, I would pick Walter's brain every chance I got. I even remember one time standing on the bank of North River with Walter and Tim Doyle and watching a copperhead slither along the ground between the three of us. I barely paid notice, I was so interested in what Walter had to say. He is a true gentleman and one of the best fishermen I have even known.
