    This morning I was cleaning out a closet and found my Art of Fishing Illinois book and video by Art Reid. Does anyone know if Mr. Reid is still around or if he wrote/produced any other books or videos?

    I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Reid, in, I think 1978. At the time I was attending SIU and working my way through college on the G.I. Bill and a part time job at a rental store. Mr. Reid rented something, don't remember what, and I chatted with him about how much I enjoyed his Southern Illinois Outdoors TV show He was hosting on SIU TV. I would estimate at the time he was at least 70 years old, so if he is still with us, he could be 100 years old. My memory is not the greatest, but, it seems I do remember news of his passing maybe 20 odd years ago.
