Jim Birklholm, also known as Jim “Castwell” on the Fly Anglers Online Web site, died Tuesday while on a fishing trip to Crooked Island in the Bahamas. According to a post on the FAO bulletin board, Birkholm “complained of severe stomach pains on the flight into Crooked Island, was taken to the clinic on the Island and died at the clinic while waiting for a charter flight to take him back to the Nassau Island hospital.” More information can be found on the FAO Web site.
