If you haven’t been there, it’s a real beauty of a refurbished mill whose owners have a sincere desire to help the Woonasquatucket River that flows through the backyard.

Where others threw shopping carts and rolled car batteries down a lazy hill into a sweet piece of river, Rising Mills has stepped up to bring it back.

One Who Got Away

This one got away. I don’t often keep fish I catch anymore but that’s of little salve to the wound of seeing a giant winter bass come to the edge of your kayak then watch it slip back down when a piece of leader gives way at its tipping point.
