A tribute to outdoor writer, enthusiastic angler Spider Rybaak
Spider Rybaak, who sadly passed away on Jan. 11, was my favorite outdoor writer, a scribe that produces the facts garnished with his great personality.
Ray Hrynyk was Spider Rybaak, and he told me he was dubbed the nickname because of his lanky stature. He stood around 6-feet, 5-inches and did resemble a spider: a very active spider. Rybaak was an excitable man and when you furnish him with a rod and reel, watch out, there is never a dull moment.
