Celebrating the Lives of Long Time HFF Supporters


Neil P. Moss

Neil P. Moss was born October 30, 1943 in Idaho Falls, Idaho and passed away November 10, 2017 surrounded by his family. Neil's favorite time of the year came to be known as "Moss' Holy Week," when he and his closest fly-fishing friends would descend on the Henry's Fork of the Snake River. They would float their favorite stretches of the river for three full days in groups of two, then reunite at Elk Creek Ranch to compare their tales of the fish they caught. He organized these fishing trips for 32 years. Neil was a great friend and supporter of the Henry's Fork.

Michael Edward Aldrich

The Henry's Fork and it's followers lost a dedicated advocate and trusted companion. Mike spent many decades on the river  pursuing the magnificent trout and enjoying the beautiful Ranch environs. He was an excellent dry fly angler and passionate steelheader. He always offered a smile and friendship to all he met.....a gentleman in the truest sense. Much of his accomplished business life was dedicated to Christian ministries and humanitarian causes.
    In the early years of the Henry's Fork Foundation he was instrumental in fundraising , environmental advocacy and professional advice .....a great friend of the river and the Foundation. I speak for many saying that we are all deeply saddened by his loss.

- Tribute by Mick Mickelson

Jim Dean

From the beginning, we knew that Jim could fish and his flies were exquisite, but it was more than his talents as an angler and fly tyer that set him apart from others of equal skill. You learned within minutes of conversation that here was a man of extraordinary passion and sensitivity. Whether written or expressed vocally, Jim’s words for the things he truly cared about were almost poetic.

Prolific as a writer, Jim’s books and magazine articles communicated not only sound information but also a message of reverence for water and the life it sustains. He was a thinker of the highest order and I believe he wanted to understand everything.  Patient, kind, and mannerly, Jim Dean will be remembered as a true southern gentleman. Rest well old friend.
