Ray “Poppy” McKinney
Ray “Poppy” McKinney began fishing with Kellogg Fishing Club with his partner Andy McKinney, in 1997. Fishing together for more than 21 years at KFC, he and Andy won many, many tournaments and even an Angler of the Year. Poppy loved to visit with the many friends he had at the Club throughout the years. He was revered by the members of the Club and no one missed an opportunity to shake his hand, or more likely hug his neck, and trade a story or two whenever they would see him. Poppy went on to fish in the next fishing circuit on October 27, 2019.
He is truly missed by all.
