Russ Faught “AKA” MR KOKANEE
January 1, 1942 to July 18, 2011

For Russ Faught, The Fisherman’s Friend wasn’t just a bait and tackle shop. It was his dream store, where he could teach people of all ages how to fish in places as close as Lodi Lake and as far away as Flaming Gorge, Wyo. It was a place where he would give a kid who came in with a Mickey Mouse pole a brand new rod with only the promise that he or she bring in the first fish they catch. It was a place where he could constantly be surrounded by the hobby to which he dedicated his whole life.

His love of the land-locked salmon would lead him on 15-hour car rides several times during the summer to Flaming Gorge. He even created the R-Lure, which was specifically designed to catch trout and Kokanee and was proud of receiving several line World Records for Kokanee. But more than the pride Russ had for his fishing accomplishments, Russ took the most pride in the friendships he made over the years. If you had Russ as a friend you could always count on him to be there for you. As a friend he was second to none!
