State’s Rights, Mining & Debris (Destruction of Habitat OK’d at Fed Level)

Despite opposition from the Governors of Tennessee and Kentucky, the Bush administration has just given the official green light to mountain top coal mining operations to bury streams with their mine debris.

Approval by EPA and the White House Office of Management and Budget paved the way for Interior Department officials to finalize industry-backed changes in the 25-year-old stream “buffer zone” rule.

Not sure there is any habitat/fish to preserve by now, but this is an example of EPA and Interior approving mining interests while across the country (as I posted a few days ago) Salem, Oregn is at odds with Feds over drinking water v. fish. To me, a clear sign of varying standards and monied interests.

The E.B. Caddis Pupa @ Winona Fly Factory

 Justin Carroll at Winona Fly Factory tied up this dubbed and beaded caddis pattern (E.B. Caddis). I like it.

What I like about Justin’s site is he makes no pretense of being an expert. He is a beginner and shares all manner of beginnings from tying, small stream fly fishing, entomology explorations, skinning critters, tattoo’s and assorted minutiae that gives him pleasure as he learns. That is what this site is about too, so I like the tone~sharing discoveries.
