I have many fond memories of watching his show as a kid. It used to get me all fired up to pester my dad to take me fishing. Tony Dean will be missed, my thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

That is sad to hear. I've been watching his shows for years. One of the few hosts of a fishing show that just delivered the joy of fishing without the hard product sell. His promotion of the Dakotas as fishing and hunting destinations was unparalleled. I will miss him.

Im very sad to hear this news! My thoughts are also with his family. I will miss him and his show greatly. Probably one of the nicest guys I ever met in the "bussiness". He just had a way of putting you at ease when he talked.

As everyone who ever watched his show knows he was more than a hunter/fisherman. He really worked to improve the envirenment in wich he lived and played. A great stewart of the land for sure.

We have lost another great outdoorsman so who is going to step up and take his place?

Very well said Northlander, I must say, I really enjoyed watching Tony and since he was so down to earth about his show and not all glam, I felt like he was the guy next door doing thing just like him was something anyone could do. He will be missed! My thoughts to Tony's family.

Very sad news. I did have the chance to meet him in person and talk to him as he was a keynote speaker for the Iowa Association of County Conservation Boards annual conference. He was an excellent speaker and talked to him afterwards that night during social hour in the hotel bar. Definitely down to earth guy and made time to hear what you had to say. True steward fo the land and water. RIP Tony

I agree with everything said about Tony. My guess is that Tony would be quite proud of the good words everyone is saying about him.

He was one of my all time favorites.

Terrible news...

Absolutely loved watching Tony Dean. He gave us Minnesotans a look at the outdoors life in the Dakotas.

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
