    I am deeply sorry to have to share with you that our great champion of wild fish conservation and the fly fishing life, Doug Rose, has died after a brief battle with cancer.
    Fair winds to a great heart and good friend.

    Very sorry to hear that Bob. Too many have been lost from cancer, and it's even worse when they champion a cause.

    Wow, that's awful to hear. I never met him, but have been very appreciative of everything he has done, and the books he has written.

    Very sad news! My condolences to his family and friends. I met him briefly, but never got the chance to know him.. wish I had.

    He will be in my thoughts today and the next time I'm out on the beach. Peace Doug!

    I don't even know what to say. This is terrible news. If anything, Mr. Rose helped foster my own appreciation, via his writing, for the fly fishing history and traditions of the Olympic Peninsula. You will be missed. RIP

    P.S. Maybe you will finally get see Syd Glasso tie a spey fly.
