Friends Of WishMaster
Honouring the Legacy of Rolf Balansiak and Wishmaster Big Baits
As many of you know, on the morning of Thursday, January 17th 2008, the founder and sole producer of hand-crafted baits at Wishmaster Big Baits Rolf Balansiak- passed on, succumbing to the sudden and fatal effects of the rare blood disorder known as T.T.P. [Moschcowitz disease].

The 3rd Annual Event will be held on October 22nd, 23rd, 24th 2010, once again at the Pickerel River Marina. The Weekend Event is a friendly fishing get-together amongst friends and muskie-anglers to honour the memory of the Late Rolf Balansiak and the Legacy of Wishmaster Big Baits.
