Legendary fishing writer, ‘Uncle Homer,’ dies at 97

The fishing community lost a legend this weekend when renowned bass fisherman and longtime Star-Banner outdoors columnist Homer Circle died early Saturday morning at the age of 97.

Circle, known affectionately as “Uncle Homer” to his readers, was an icon in the fishing industry after becoming a member of the Outdoor Writers Association of America in 1946. He authored several books, the last of which was “Bass Wisdom,” published in 2000. He also hosted three national fishing shows and starred in two fishing films — “Bigmouth” and “Bigmouth Forever” — during his illustrious career.
