Thanks for the link, even though it is very very sad to read :(((((((.

Knut is a great guy and an outstanding fly caster and fisherman as well!

Words don't come easy!

Some of my very best hours are spent fly fishing with my brother so this is very sad reading.

We are thinking of you

Grim reading.  A really cruel disease.  Awful for his brother and family to watch him go downhill like that.

Sakke,
Have an uncle that made it through this (not completely unchanged). It's very rough  :(

Do you know if they have an easy donation method around? Something like paypal non-profit?

Might be kind of good to have a Casting Pledge setup in conjunction with the Norway 2012 Competition. Say... pledge $1 for every meter of Paul's best cast? Or Lasse's if you're feeling generous ;)

I think that is a great idea.  I will put up a dollar per meter for the longest fly cast made at the comp.  

My heart breaks when I hear of these stories.

We should work something on the time Paul manages to drag himself out of bed  :p

I don't know if we have the legal stuff Paypal Non-Profit needs - proof of charitable status etc. Maybe a conventional Paypal acct?

Anyone know about this stuff?

Yes, even a conventional paypal could do it (was thinking there'd be less fees with non-profit). There are other donation / crowdsourcing websites, but it should be setup on the receiving end.

Casting pledge or auction or... ? I'm game to help
