Doug was such a positive inspiration to me in our teens. We were always pushing the envelope with outdoor adventures, but those were the best memories of that time in my life.

10 day backpacking trip up into the high Sierras; long hauls far off shore for albacore and Doug breaking his favorite steelhead rod on a fierce tuna; halibut fishing in Half Moon Bay and me ending up in the ER having a treble hook surgically removed from my hand; and of course, getting snowed in at Lake Edison on July 4th.

I will miss Doug's love and passion for the outdoors and his never ending smile as he recapped the days activities as we sat in front of the campfire.

Rest in peace my friend and always a tight line!!!!
