On VFR flight using VFR advisories approach called traffic at 12 O'clock (I don't remember range). Was looking. Passenger in right seat called 'pull up!' I pulled back on yoke, saw high wing red and white plane go by slightly right of radar. Our course was about 160 degrees. Approach followed other aircraft and said its course was about 340 degrees. It could have been climbing, descending or turning, but if it was cruising it was at wrong altitude. Poor visibility was a factor. Multiple advisories from approach may have been helpful.

Title: TWO SMA'S HAVE NMAC.
Narrative: ON VFR FLT USING VFR ADVISORIES APCH CALLED TFC AT 12 O'CLOCK (I DON'T REMEMBER RANGE). WAS LOOKING. PAX IN RIGHT SEAT CALLED 'PULL UP!' I PULLED BACK ON YOKE, SAW HIGH WING RED AND WHITE PLANE GO BY SLIGHTLY RIGHT OF RADAR. OUR COURSE WAS ABOUT 160 DEGS. APCH FOLLOWED OTHER ACFT AND SAID ITS COURSE WAS ABOUT 340 DEGS. IT COULD HAVE BEEN CLBING, DSNDING OR TURNING, BUT IF IT WAS CRUISING IT WAS AT WRONG ALT. POOR VIS WAS A FACTOR. MULTIPLE ADVISORIES FROM APCH MAY HAVE BEEN HELPFUL.
