Salida and the rest of Colorado lost a fishing buddy with the death of Fred Rasmussen Jan. 17 at the age of 95.

Rasmussen was a founding member of Collegiate Peaks Chapter of Trout Unlimited, along with Vern Rutherford, and was an avid fly fisherman, expert fly-tier and a conservationist.

He was also a writer, teacher, biology curriculum consultant and World War II veteran, who while serving in the Army Air Corps had his plane shot out from under him twice.

Born and raised in Michigan, he began a lifelong love of fishing as a boy during summers at a family cabin.
