Female Fly Fishers And The Flat River is a celebration of increasing female participation in fishing and the return of a lovely RI river, freed from her stone confines. Trout Unlimited is all over us this week and I’m glad to have them.
We are a terribly divided country just now and some will quickly argue about how much so. This is a fine time to seek out and enjoy some Maine camps and guides. Both can transport us to a slower time and remind us we are a strong country, built on skills and l labors and abilities to listen to others.
Trout Unlimited met in Stamford to talk cleans waters, good people and good beer along the Mill River. Conservation is good conversation. This week, learn what they teach, share and fight for and how you can be part of 300,000 people who support cold, clean water. With 420 local chapters contributing 730,000 volunteer hours, you just might find a place to help and fish with those good people.
Steven Hawley’s “Cracked The Future of Dams In A Hot, Chaotic World” chronicles our dam building history and how it’s time to free our rivers. Every page is a gift if you care about wild waters, trickling tributaries or appreciating nature left in peace.
From RI’s Trout Unlimited chapter to the Narragansett Surfcasters to Ocean State Kayak Bassin’, this week we hit them all with Spring banquets and tournaments to start off a new season in high style. And, we get to say thank you to some deserving good people.
