Catfish Gray (1917-2002) was the teacher, and friend, of my own herbal mentor, Will Endres. Will spent a year living out of a tent in the woods, without running water or electricity, to be close to Catfish and learn from his extensive knowledge. This led to a 28-year relationship, until Catfish’s passing in 2002. I feel honoured to now be a small part in this lineage of herbalists and wildcrafters. Thank you Catfish Gray, thank you, Will Endres.
