On Jan 2nd Roughfish lost one of its own. Chad Wentzel (Superfrog) passed away after a battle with cancer. If you were lucky enough to know Superfrog, you know how huge of a loss this is for our community. You may know Chad as the two time back to back world record holder for the Golden Redhorse. He was a regular at the Roundups on the root river. A joy to share a river bank with, never slow with a joke or a helping hand. He was one of the kindest and sweetest souls, a true one of a kind. His presence will be missed greatly, but he is not truly gone. He will live on in our hearts. It was a tradition of his to dedicate the first shorthead redhorse he caught of the year to Paula, another roughfisher who passed too soon. We can continue this tradition in his name as well as hers.
