We've always considered Ed the "ultimate fisherman". One of our fondest memories of Ed is when the fishing was slow and most or all of us gave up, he continued to fish the OBX surf relentlessly.
It was always nice talking with him regardless of the subject matter. We've all learned a lot from Ed and he will be sorely missed.
Our deepest sympathy to our friends, the Konchan family.
