In memory: Paul Wells

Paul Wells received his proper due this morning from Maureen O’Donnell, the Sun-Times premier obit writer.

I remember Wells at many Chicago carp or bank fishing events, but the photo that most sticks with me is the one above, where I happened to be at Northerly Island when he had his daughter Tatiana out carp fishing.

Mr. Wells was another example of why I consider bank and carp fishermen the best kind to know.
