We are deeply saddened to hear Dan Coombs has passed away in January. Over the years, Dan had organized multiple volunteer riparian planting parties for the fly fishers at NSEA salmon habitat restoration sites. We deeply appreciated his dedication and positive outlook, and he will be deeply missed by all those fortunate enough to have known him. Our deepest sympathies go out to his wife Jane, their family, and friends.
