Truly a sad day. My thoughts and prayers are with family and friends. Ron’s teachings will not go away with him. As a young angler learning to target different species, Ron’s writings and TV appearances were so invaluable for me. A true legend and visionary.

A sad loss to the fishing word. The Linders have always kept it real, unlike some thier fame never got the best of them. They talked to everyone as equals. God bless and thank you for sharing your knowledge and love of fishing with so many! You will be missed by many.

My sincere condolences to the Lindner family. I grew up watching Saturday morning fishing shows by these extremely talented men. The shows, magazines, videos and books helped to fuel a passion for fishing and the outdoors that still burns brightly today.
To say Rod helped to shape the fishing industry is an understatement. He helped bring the spotlight on Minnesota to our living rooms each week. They were hometown boys we could all relate to. I owe Rod and the entire Lindner organization a very heart-felt thank you for everything you’ve done through the years to help impart your wisdom to the average man, woman or child. Rod will be sorely missed.
