\r\n I an very saddened to release the news that Mike Byrne Passed this am. It has been a very private matter up until this evening . And out of respect for the family I would like to ask we do not bombarded them with questions . There are folks in this community at are deeply effected by this loss. If you knew Mike you knew how much he meant to everyone . He will be missed and remembered fondly . He was wonderful man . We all have great memories of him . His screen name was "catawba" . How about we each share a memory here about our time with him ..

    \r\n Red X hothole on a cold morning. After driving with me to buy coffee for the group, sitting there in a comfy folding chair, looking happy, with the smell of pipe tobacco around him.

    \nGreat guy. We missed him Saturday and wondered why he wasn\'t in touch for this M&G.

    \r\n I hated to see this. Mike was good friend. I always enjoyed floating, fishing and most of all sitting around the campfire with him.
    \n My best memories would be that, Mike and I spent the last couple of years at the Mt.Airy bluegrass convention. Friday night\'s we\'d hang out and listening to music, camping and Saturday hit the New River, then back for music.

    \r\n You have been missed already by your absence at recent meet & greets, you were even in our thoughts this past Saturday, looking at the chair at the hot hole walkway wishing you were in it with pipe in hand overseeing the festivities. Glad for the times we had together fishing the New River and sharing time at the Hardcore Tournament. I\'ll miss you my friend.

    \r\n I first met Mike at the Hot Hole sitting on top of the bank in his chair. It was very cold that year we talked for awhile and he never said anything about the cold you could just tell he had an air to him that you rarely find in a person. My heart is heavy with sadness with his passing and my prayers for his family during these hard times.\r\n

    \r\n A great guy and a true ambassador of Riverbassin. I consider myself lucky to have gotten to spend a little time with him on several bodies of water and around several campfires (yes, pipe in hand and maybe a bottle of wine).\r\n

    \r\n Can\'t say enough good things about Mike. He\'s one of those guys that would go out of his way to help and was happy to do so. Always positive and just glad to be there. The type of person you wanted to be around. Humble. A true gentleman.
    \n
    \nOne of my fond memories was him flipping out of his 119 trying to launch on the Yadkin early one October morning. I got a good laugh. Most guys would have been cussing, cold, and complaining. Not Mike! He took it in stride and made the best of that day.
    \n
    \nI also recall a float with just the two of us. He drove 2 hrs to meet me, finding a muddy mess at the launch. We fished anyway. He caught 1 and I got skunked. He was just glad to explore new water, enjoy the wildlife, and paddle a few miles. I was embarrassed thinking he had wasted his day. He left with a smile and thanked me for organizing the trip.
    \n
    \nAs others have said, I should be more like Mike.

    \r\n This instantly forced my eyes to well up as soon as I realized what I was reading.
    \n
    \nI never had the pleasure of meeting Catawba face to face, but anytime I was curious about something with the rivers, or had any type of question, he was always helpful to me in a huge way.
    \n
    \nYou\'ll be missed, buddy. You\'ve been very respected and always will be. I\'m so sorry to hear this.
    \n
    \nIf there\'s anything small or large that I can do to help in any way, somebody please let me know.\r\n

    \r\n Sad indeed. What a true Gentleman. Like FW said he and all of us should strive to be more like Mike. Rest in Peace Catawba.

    \nTwo pictures I took of Mike on the Yadkin. He really did enjoy that OT 119.

    \r\n Wow...so saddened. He always had a smile in that canoe. And usually a few fish on the line. I am better for knowing him. Prayers for his family...

    \r\n Thanks Dave, but Wademaster saw the thread before I did and suggested placing Mike\'s picture on the home page. I hope his family and friends are blessed to know how much Mike was respected and cared for by the anglers who knew him.

    \r\n NCangler and the RedXers have suffered a great loss with the passing of Mike. He was a gentle soul, always seeming at ease with life and those around him. He approached the water the same way. Gliding along in the 119, going where the current took him, focused more on enjoying the minute and those around him than on catching fish. If you have ever shared a campfire with him, you have indeed been a lucky man. Thanks for allowing me to share the water with you. May your bronzebacks be golden. Rest In Peace my friend.\r\n

    \r\n I can\'t think of a better front page.
    \n
    \nMy very first Meet and Greet was at lake Norman State park. I had been talking with Catawba on the phone, he had told me he would be there for sure. So TJ and I headed out, we got to the park just as the cold rains really started coming down. We found out the winter hours were in effect and that the park would close before Mike had a chance to get there from South Charlotte. After telling the story to the Ranger, he promised to start locking things up at the other end of the park and to delay locking the main gate as long as he could. When he circled back after a 1/2 hour or so Mike was still 20 minutes away. I went into stall mode, began asking every question of the Ranger that I could think of, he cooperated, I am pretty sure he knew what I was up and played along. Mike called as soon as he crossed the gate into the park, and the Ranger left to go lock up.
    \nDuring this time of pitching camp we had been fighting cold rain and high winds trying to get a fire going with wet wood and damp newspapers. Mike, always ready, added a DuraFlame log to the campfire, and went off to pitch his tent.
    \nWe offered him a spot in ours which was already set-up but he politely refused saying that sometimes he snored. (an understatement) but as soon as he was done in his sight he came back to sit with us by what was a roaring fire by then.
    \nThat night I figured out that Catawba was going to stay up longer than any one else, I don\'t think I turned in till after 2:00, leaving him sitting in the chair enjoying the quiet, his pipe, and some wine. we had a great visit that night. I can\'t remember what we had for supper but he ate what we had to cook because his plans for a meal on the way to the park had been cut short by the time constraints. We shared some peanut butter cookies his wife had made, after we turned in a racoon finished off the few that were left.
    \nHe will be missed.

    \r\n It\'s hard to find words at times like these. Like so many of my Red X buddies Mike was a caring, sharing and gentle man. While he loved to fish I think his happiest moments were spent perched in a camp chair with that pipe enjoying nature and the camaraderie of his friends that shared his passion. None finer.

    \r\n Mike was family. Through a bond fishermen have . He was a friend and sometimes a father figure offering guidance whether on the water or for every day life. He was calm. And full of joy and happiness. Which was easily seen by all who spent time around round him . He had a peace most of us do not have. He knew what made him happy . The river and fellowship with family. I truly believe he considered us all to be his family . There was nothing he wouldn\'t give to someone in need .He was knowledgeable of rivers and fishing on a level few understand. It was a passion of his . We should all try and be more like Catawba. . As much as he means to us .. his family struggles with the greatest loss. He was only friend to us . To them he was a father a husband and a provider. I pray his family has peace and receives closer as the chapter in their life begins .

    \r\n I hate I missed the pleasure of meeting him. You can tell by all these fine people speaking so highly of him as to what kind of person he was! I know I heard several mentions of a "Mike" at this past hot hole event, I\'m guessing it was him. He\'ll be missed for sure!\r\n

    \r\n I have had a tough time finding what exactly to say. When I found out I couldn\'t believe any of it and immediately began to call all the fishing friends I knew and I still couldn\'t believe it. My first trip to the Catawba with Mr. Scott and Mrs. Tammy was the first time I truly met Mr. Mike (We had met at a Black Friday M&G but did not talk like we did on this trip)...He immediately talked to me as soon as we got into the water and it was like talking to one of my best friends. We talked ( I was still in high school) about school, college, sports, family, everything but fishing at first. He was so easy to talk to and he was always happy and gave great advice. We talked everytime we fished together and sometimes I would just lay in my kayak beside him as we floated down the river and talked while he fished because his stories and our talks were far better than any fish caught. I\'ll never forget he never let me help him carry his canoe to the truck but he always offered to help me with mine. He was definitely the most humble, caring, and patient man I have ever met. I will miss him and our fishing experences on the river, at the hothole, seeing him use a buzzbait on a 90 degree day in the summer catching more fish than me, watching him masterfully use a senko in the laydowns, fishing and eating on Black Friday, and our conversations on the phone. Thank you Mr. Mike for everything. Save me some big ones up in heaven.

    \r\n Sad news. I had about 5 experiences with Mike. 3 at NRSP, and 2 at the hot hole. Had the chance to sit with him a couple of times at his camp site at NRSP. He was a very impressive man on the water, or at his camp site. I, like all the others, consider meeting and getting to know Mike a real honor. Fantastic man. Prayers for his family\r\n

    \r\n "Catawba" will certainly be missed by many people in here as the 2 pages of testimony above this post proves, and many of those posts gave me some "moist eyes" at people\'s stories of how he touched their lives.
    \n
    \nI only met Mike twice, and both times, he left some fond memories of our few times together.
    \nMy first trip with the gang in here was just over 4 years ago at the Black Friday M&G, and Mike impressed me with his caring attitude and he made certain that I got launched OK and headed upstream in his beloved Catawba River. I was dragging behind since my daughter was a week overdue with my 3rd grandchild and I wanted to make certain that I would have time to get to the hospital and Mike seemed concerned about that. When I did launch and head out to meet the group ahead of me, the first person I met up with was Mike...and I now realize that was just him watching out for others....
    \n
    \nI also remember him from the New River M&G that I attended, and the quiet guy with the pipe in the camp chair was a mental image that I will keep forever of him. Each day on the water and each evening at camp, he would always check on me and was always available to answer my many questions....sorry that I did not get to meet him more often or get to know him better.
    \nRIP Catawba and my best wishes and prayers go out to his family.....John\r\n

    \r\n Some people don\'t have to try very hard to be nice because it is just in their nature. The few interactions I had with him, I could tell right off he was one of those people. RIP\r\n

    \r\n Still no formal Obituary that I can find. Regardless of when it is I intend to attend visitation and services.
    \nI\'ll be traveling to Burlington and then down I-85. If anyone would like to carpool from anywhere in between I have 10 seats available. Just shoot me a PM and we\'ll set up a meeting place.\r\n

    \r\n Mike\'s wife, Kathy, wanted me to share this excerpt from an email I received this morning with Mike\'s NC Angler family......
    \n
    \n"I can\'t even put into words what you all meant to my husband aka Catawba Mike. He loved the sport, but honestly believe he loved the fishing fellowship more. He talked of each and every one of you after his outings. You all were very important to him and he held you all in high regard. I have now made the NC angler site my morning reading (afternoon and evening too!) I have shared the link with my family and friends so they can read the thoughtful posts of his fishing family. He did regard you all as family. He shared many stories with Mikala and I and we had pictures in our heads of all of you. Not sure how one goes about thanking such a large part of my husband\'s life for being there and sharing his passion of being on the river. Catching fish was just a bonus, because each outing was a feather in his cap. Just completing the float, sharing time with you guys was his passion. I can\'t post on that site but if you could somehow let everyone know that Catawba loved them all and he will be watching over you all and guiding you while you are on "his river". (Because we all know he considered it his and he was willing to share!)"

      Default Catawba

      I an very saddened to release the news that Mike Byrne Passed this am. It has been a very private matter up until this evening . And out of respect for the family I would like to ask we do not bombarded them with questions . There are folks in this community at are deeply effected by this loss. If you knew Mike you knew how much he meant to everyone . He will be missed and remembered fondly . He was wonderful man . We all have great memories of him . His screen name was "catawba" . How about we each share a memory here about our time with him ..
