Russ Faught (aka Mr.Kokanee)
Jan 1, 1942 - July 18, 2011
For Russ Faught, The Fisherman's friend wasn't just a bait and tackle shop. It was his dream store, where he could teach people of all ages how to fish in places as close as Lodi Lake and as far away as Flaming Gorge, Wyo. It was a place where he could give a kid who came in with a Micky Mouse pole, a brand new rod with only the promise that he or she would bring the first fish they catch. It was a place where he could constantly be surrounded by the hobby to which he dedicated his whole life.
His love of the land-locked salmon would lead him on 15-hour car rides several times during the summer to Flaming Gorge. He even created the R-Lure, which was specifically designed to catch trout and Kokanee and was proud of receiving several line World Records for Kokanee. But more than the pride Russ had for his fishing accomplishments, Russ took the most pride in the friendships he made over the years. If you had Russ as a friend, you could always count on him to be there for you. As a friend, he was second to none!
New owners of The Fisherman's Friend, Jeremy and Jenny Grimes, will carry on the Mr.Kokanee name
