A Friend in need is a Friend indeed.
Last Friday one of our own was taken down by a massive stroke. Andrew Grillos is an Alaska West Alum and world-class guide/signature fly tyer who is very well known in the fly fishing industry. Andrew suffered a stroke and also had emergency surgery to remove clotting so he is going to face some very difficult times ahead.
Andrew’s good friend Nick English is coordinating/organizing a GoFundMe Fundraiser and it is going incredibly well so far. Nick has been updating Andrew’s struggles and accomplishments daily and passing messages back to Andrew. So far Andrew is fighting just as hard as we would expect him too and things are looking better daily for him, but it’s still going to be a huge task.
You can find Andrews GoFundMe listed under “A friend in need is a friend indeed” and we have provided the direct link to it below if you would like to donate and/or send a message to Andrew. Click here for the Andrew Grillos GoFundMe page.
Andrew also has a pretty sweet website of his own that we would recommend checking out. If you want to be inspired to tie flies just look at his website!! Click here for Andrew’s Website.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Andrew Grillos and his wonderful better half Autumn Goodrich in this incredibly tough time. And thank you Nick for being there when a friend is in need.
