Bob Ronson, a French teacher and department head in Kitchener and Orangeville, was an avid fisherman and hiker and instilled the love of the outdoors and water in his four children. First by tent and then later in a small Beachcomber trailer he and his family travelled across Canada each summer fishing in Alberta, Quebec, Newfoundland as well McGowan Lake and Bennett Lake in Ontario. Later he upgraded to a larger trailer and settled down for years at a time on Lake Dalrymple and finally Little Pike Bay (Lake Huron).
When Bob retired, he joined the National Fishing Lure Collectors Club and with the support of his wife Ruth, began collecting a select few types of lures including Chippewa lures which he prized above all others. Later he added variety to his collection through NFLCC shows & auctions, mail order catalogs, ebay, and many tens of thousands of kilometers in Canada, Europe and the United States.
One of Bobís greatest joys was spending time organizing, cataloguing, displaying and giving tours of his collections and he would be happy to see it continue to make others happy for years to come.
