        With great sadness I share the news of the passing of longtime alpine fishing advocate Jamie Van Etten after a lengthy and hard fought battle with cancer. Jamie was a member of both the Trail Blazers and Hi-Lakers for over 30 years during which time he served the clubs in various officer capacities including President and commitee chairman positions. Jamie’s love and exuberance for the outdoors, the high country, and especially the fishing are legendary; he will be greatly missed. Jamie’s tenacity and dedication to the fish, and hence the angling public, whether catching or planting, was demonstrated most vividly when he was forced to drink some of the water from the fish jug while traversing a dry ridge on the way to the lake. We can only aspire to face life as well as you did, Jamie!

                That is a very nice tribute to Jamie. I’ve been out hunting those very mushrooms with him.
