Everyone called him Uncle Homer for a reason.

He treated strangers as family. There wasn’t a narcissistic bone in his body. When you spoke to him, he listened patiently and caringly to what you had to say.

That’s one of many reasons the outdoors world wears a heavy heart these days, learning of the passing of the great Homer Circle. He died at the age of 97 in Ocala, Fla. recently.

Record-breaking CatfishNever doubt Rodney Akey when he says he’s gonna catch you a big one.

Just ask his buddy, Will Skalla.

“Will likes his bluegill fishing, but I prefer bigger fish,” said Akey, a catfish specialist. “I told him that bluegills were for women and children, and that if he would come with me I’d show him what big fish look like.”

So, on May 22, the Niles anglers headed to the St. Joseph River below Berrien Springs dam. About 8 p.m., Akey’s line began to move. He let the fish run a bit, set the hook and the battle was on.
