Don't know if any of you guys knew him, but Billy Phillips a local lure maker and famed bass angler from Jackson, Tenn. passed away Thursday. He died of cancer.
He made lures like the Go-Go Girl and Double Whammy for years out of his garage.
He fished two classics and finished 4th in one of 'em.
I wrote several stories on him over the years.
He will be missed.
