A Farewell to Dick Fujita
Dick past awayat the age of 86 after battling long illnesses. Dick was a beloved friend, competitor and mentor to such casters as Steve Rajeff and many others. Dick is a Member of the ACA Hall of Fame and the International Casting Hall of Fame. Dick appeared 7 times on the ACA All American Team. He holds the ACA Senior Men's 7.5g Plug Distance Record and shares the ACA Senior Men's Trout Fly Accuracy Record with Zack Willson. Competing in his fifteeth consecutive National, he won All Distance Plug Senior Men in 2004 and 3rd in All Distance Senior Men in 2005. His nephew Robert Henry Fujita would like to share a note with the ACA casting community. The Fujita family casting dynasty includes Dick's father and Hall of Fame Member, Henry Fujita Sr. and Dick's surviving brother Henry Fujita Jr. Our condolences to the Fujita family. A luncheon memorial was held at the Nationals in Cincinnati on Friday, August 3rd.
