Homer Circle – Thank You for All You’ve Done

Homer Circle 1914 – 2012.

By now many of you already know the sad news that one of Bass Fishing’s most cherished writers, communicators and advocates, Homer Circle, passed Friday, June 22, 2012. Homer Circle is one of the few people who has been around since the dawn of the sport and over his career in the fishing business touched many lives with his teachings. He coupled with Glen Lau to produce the films Bigmouth and Bigmouth Forever and did similar viedos with the acclaimed Lindner Family. He was editor of Outdoor Life for a few decades and wrote a number of books on the subject of bass fishing. His works have touched the lives of nearly every bass angler.

Over the course of the next month or so, Bass Fishing Archives will be doing a tribute to “Uncle Homer” for all he has done for us.

Thank you Uncle Homer for your work and dedication to our sport.

    So sorry to hear about his passing. He was a great writer and a good friend I met several times at the Classic and the AFTMA fishing tackle shows.

  • Harold Sharp

    Uncle Homer was one of the first to help Ray Scott get Professional Bass Fishing organized. They don’t make them like Uncle Homer anymore, he was one of a kind and will be missed by all anglers.

  • Homer is one of the few writers that I can say ill be missed by everyone in the industry. No-one involved in fishing didn’t know, or at least know of him. We’ve lost a true giant.
