    I would like to ask all of us to keep a fellow angler in our prayers!!! After reading his books and valuing the contributions he has made to our sport I was stunned to read Doug Rose's Blog this evening a hear the news. Let's all send Doug our best and keep him in our prayers.

    Sorry to hear this. Keep fighting indeed. I have met Doug a few times and although he doesn't know me from Adam he was always generous with his time and knowledge.

    He won't be answering emails for now. He needs some quiet and privacy. Time for healing.

    Yes, Bob, please pass on to Doug that we are pulling for him. Doug doesn't know me from Adam either, but I have talked with him a few times and have read most of his books.
    Bob, please pass on to Doug that he simply has to get better, because myself and a lot of other people haven't taken the opportunity to fish with him yet.
    Thanks.

    Bob, thank you for the information on emails. I was about to send one to him, but I certainly understand what Doug's priorities need to be. I have enjoyed Doug's company on the OP rivers several times in person and many times vicariously through his eloquent books. Please give Doug my best wishes for a speedy recovery.

    Wow, that is sad news. I've never met you either Doug, but I want to sometime. You do indeed have some great friends. I'll be pulling for you too.
    Best of luck.

    Hi Everyone!--I just heard about this thread and want to tell you all how much your thoughts and prayers mean to me and my family. Everything is going as well as can be expected right now, and I've got my favorite painting of mallards on a woodland pond on the wall at the foot of the bed and a photos of Ruby and Lily on the nightstand. As for email, I meant that I wouldn't respond to them right now, but I am always thrilled to hear from my fellow fly fishermen and women--especially with fish stories. Again, thank you so much. Doug

    Damn. Sorry to hear it. I've enjoyed Doug's books immensely. Actually emailed him through the blog a couple weeks ago and he sent me a really nice and informative reply.

    Doug--good luck and best to you and yours. I'll be out on the OP next weekend for the first time in a bit--I'll be thinking of you as I float and wade around on the west end.

    Best,

    Jason

    I've been checking back on Doug's blog and this is NOT the news I was wanted to read. So sorry Doug that you are battling this.

    I know you'll return to teaching and guiding this community as soon as you can - we all look forward to your speedy recovery.

    I will be tying the Keta Rose tomorrow, thinking of you and your recovery.

    Jeff
