John Fabian our dear friend, fishing legend, film maker and much more died this past Thursday. John was with his beloved wife Anne in his home and passed on peacefully.
If you ever had a chance to fish with John or meet him in any capacity you know he was one of the most generous and authentic souls you’d ever met. John shared his love for fishing and hunting with everyone he came into contact with.
Some of John’s most famous films include Sasquatch and Buffalo Rider, he also made films for 3M in the fishing world. Steelhead films with Lanny Waller, Tarpon films with Billy Pate and numerous other instructional works.
John will be known as a wonderful teacher, gifted angler, hunter and outdoorsman. John fished and hunted in Oregon more than anyone we know over the past 50 years. If you have stories you’d like to share please use our blog comments field, we would love to here them.
John was a beloved friend and will be missed greatly. We will forever cherish our time in this world with him.
