So long to Captain Allan George Starr:
The old salt passed away Feb 11, 2020. Allan was part of the Ecuagringo team 2006 and 2007 fishing onboard the Blue. Many mates and captains learned a great deal from his experience.
This was a man that had words of wisdom for every occasion. May he fish away in the celestials seas!
