About Walter W. Jollie

Walter Jollie

Walter W. Jollie grew up hunting and fishing with his father and siblings in NJ. His greatest love was freshwater fishing in all the wonderful lakes, rivers, and streams here in Northern NJ. It didn’t matter if it was trout, bass, walleye, crappie, or even sunnies, fishing was his relaxation, his stress relief, and his time in nature. One of his greatest joys was to take his children and grandchildren fishing. Walter passed away in 2019 and in remembrance of him, we hope to encourage the love of fishing.
