Some bad news.....

It is with great sorrow that we pass along the passing of long time Western Bass Club Member Dave Altier...
Dave had just undergone a medical procedure to correct a nerve problem in his neck and passed away this morning from complications from that procedure.
Dave and Vange, his beloved wife, were very long time members of Western and they ran the tackle store at Coulee Playland Resort for many years in retirement. Vange has asked that no service information at this time and we will keep the site updated if there is a change.
It is also with sadness we announce that Les Pickles has suffered a Stroke  last week and is hopefully being moved to a rehab center in Puyallup... it is reported by Hal Schlagle that Les has had several set backs but is reported to be comfortable and will be undergoing rehab to assist in his poss. paralysis issues. We will also update everyone on his progress....
This is a reminder to please give your family members a hug, a phone call or a visit in these times as we make our way through life. Fishing has been a staple for these two and will always be.
