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.
Redington’s new Wrangler Fly Rods are well-designed, easy to cast, built with an eye for quality and ready to fish right out of the tube. We fished the Bass model in northern Maine and it quickly proved itself to be strong, easy to cast and worth every dime of its fair price. Check out the videos here and on our Your Tube channel at The Fish Wrap Writer. Thanks!
Bryan Archer’s “The Meditative Fisherman” is a fine book of fishing, travel, reflection and appreciation all angler should read several times. I loved every page.
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.
