A passing to report

Fly tyers lost a titan last week. Norm Norlander (Norvise) died after a brief but potent illness. He was a founding member of the Lower Columbia FlyFishers Club and while not an aficionado of two handed casting, was a kind and enthusiastic advocate of all things flyfishing. Thousands learned from him. Hundreds use his vise to tie flies. Many saddened friends today.

I met and talked to Norm many times at different shows over the years, He was a gentleman and I enjoyed the conversations I had with him. It was fun to watch him work his magic with his vise. He will be missed.
