If I could find someone who would offer me a contract guaranteeing the life George has had, and that I'd be surrounded by good friends with a beer in my hand at the end, I'd take it in a heartbeat.

George, I truly admire you for finding new ways to enjoy and explore life and relationships over the course of your lifetime, as changes inevitably occur....it really shows in the pictures you've posted over time. No sympathy from me, but respect and admiration always.

Tim, George1

Just go to the fly fishing area

It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

George, never got the chance to meet you in person but at highflyer's last get together Carolynn got one of your fly's you tied. Due to that and the inspiration you have given here on PBF Carolynn & I are the owners of two fly rods, took some lessons and she has taken up fly tying and has made a couple dozen so far.

Can't say I'm very good at fly fishing, but will work on it, thanks to you.

Hi George, I did not physically meet you,but I am sure I know you to some degree through PB. We will meet on the ONLY true "Perfect Pond" one day, and you can teach me to fly fish, as long as we need for you to teach me.

I always say, I am on the right side of the dirt to people quite often, but the other side is beyond compare if one is ready, as your are.

As you know you will live on in this world here @PB and your friends and colleges will refer to you, of you friendship and knowledge, for a long time. That is a legacy worth living for and as we all do, die for.

I have had several friends and family pass on from cancers and they know there are at times things worse than death, SO, I wish you comfort and internal peace as you transition.

Your PB friend, mpc

Save a best fly rod for me to borrow and I will try to bring my G-loomis ultra-lite to share!!!!


Life is more fun with a pole in your hand.

Hey George,

I got one of your hand tied flies at the last auction. I really really wanted it and then thought....why not donate it back to the forum and let it be a gift that keeps on giving....I still have a pic of it though!

Take care Buddy!

George - You have been an inspiration to all on Pond Boss for many years. Your passion for raising fish and your talents of tying flies and using the fly rod are documented here and will remain for the future for many more to learn from your posts about your passion for fish and the art of fly angling. It has been a pleasure to meet you and share stories.

Just got back from seeing George.

His three living sisters are stopping by tomorrow, the oldest is 96. All of George's sons were there with some of their children and of course, so was Nicky.

George's mind is still as sharp as always. I was scolded at least twice for telling stories!! It was good to see him one last time before I have to go back to work for a while. There is so much more to learn, but he continues to looses weight and strength. His handshake is as strong as ever and I am glad to say he still has the strength to give me a hug before I had to leave. I am glad I saved a few of his flies from our last outing. I think they may end up on a wall in the cabin.

Just checked in and saw this thread. George it was a pleasure to see you at a few of the PB Conferences. You gave me a hand-tied fly years ago, and I never used it - still in the case. It's on my desk, and I see it everyday. Always brings a smile…


Just do it...

King George from the first time I met you at the High-Flyer Ranch in the Fall of 2012 I knew you were someone special.

You are an inspiration, teacher, and friend to many.

Thank you for your friendship.

Please let me know if you & Nicky need anything.

ps: I'm still upset the one time you visit my pond I had already left that day, but I am happy you gave it your blessings.

George,
I was a true delight for Jodi and me to meet you at the last pondboss conference.

I would have owned one of your hand-made flies if they weren't so "well-made" and you so "well-loved" the price went through the roof!

Cheers to you and Mrs. Glazener

Yeah, I don't check in here as often as I used to, but glad I did today. A few hours ago, I walked down to the pond at first light with the dogs and picked up a spinning rod. While fishing with it, I looked at the flyrods setting there and thought, "What would George think of me?"

I'll fix that this afternoon, George. And I know just what I'll throw... it'll be one of those clousers that my son and I tie on jig hooks now.

You've been a great inspiration to us, George. May the Lord continue to bless you!

Took a short road trip to Plano to visit with our dear friend, George Glazener. He has been an instrumental voice in the Pond Boss family. His expectations for all of us is our best...and then to be better. That's his nature.

He and I had a very nice, energetic two hour conversation. He wants all of us to know he is at peace, is pleased with his life and loves us all.

We talked about everything from his life as a geologist to fish to faith. Loved every minute of it.

Hey George I still have most all of the awesome flies that you have tied for me over the years, although I was never afraid to use them LOL since they are so deadly effective...

These are works of art, inspired by fish, fishing, and friendship.

I intend to keep these in a very safe place, maybe frame them in a display case (I reserve the right to use one every now and then LOL). My personal goal is to teach myself to tie your flies someday, and so I will need these for later instructional purposes. Then I hope to pass em on to friends and family down the road, same way you have done. Never sell them, only give them away. No telling how many countless hours you have spent tying flies that were pre-destined to be given away...

Thank you for every precious moment.


It's ALL about the fish!

George,
The first time I met you was at one of the earlier Pond Boss Conferences, you was sitting in the Pond Boss booth. Of course it was not long before you started talking about fly fishing and tying your own pellet flies. I don't think you really felt great that day, but for the next hour or two you showed James and I how to make our own pellet flies. The next day I went out and bought the materials as you instructed and made my own, the pellet flies worked great and I still have most of the materials. I must admit I have not used one of those flies for sometime now, simply because I get busy doing other things. However, this upcoming labor day weekend my 9 year old grandson will be at my lake with me, I am going to grab the fly rod and a handful of pellet flies and we are going fly fishing in your honor! From all of the post above it is obvious God has blessed you George, and pray that he continues to do so.

When George talks, people listen!

George, thanks for not only helping teach me to become a somewhat better fisher, but more, for being a better man! Living so far away, I have not been able to enjoy seeing your sly grin when you know you're going to make a point that will sink in through my thick skull, but I hope you know I feel blessed to have known you, and especially that you gave me your time and attention to help, talk with, and even yell at me, when needed!

I wonder if the pond God's have a clue what's in store for them soon? Fish on, my friend, FISH ON!

I took the fly rod and our dogs for a walk around the pond Monday evening and landed one of our HSB's. The sun was setting, dogs were lying around, and it was a quick 'thank you' and release of a healthy fish. Doesn't get any better. I wouldn't have them if not for you and others here that suggested what a great fish they could be in a small pond. I looked to the west and wished you well. More importantly I am inspired to be a better man thanks to your life story and advice freely shared.
