Carry the torch

As little as this post means ultimately I just wanted to say that the world is a poorer place for the passing of Doug Rose out on the Olympic Peninsula, a true champion of anadromous fishes and gifted writer. He was a flyfishing guide and yet he did not turn to abusing the resource and spoke in reverence and respect of his quarry, and was not afraid to speak out against fishing when it was damaging, a perspective which is very lacking these days. With Doug and many other older conservationists passing recently here’s hoping his legacy is that some of the younger people involved in anadromous fisheries on whatever side can pick up the torch and carry on the voice of reason and respect for the fish and their ecosystems that are increasingly under fire.

RIP
