Redux: Tiffany Johnson Benefit (flies, donations, respond please!)

“THE Mountain River Fly Shop and Swallow’s Nest Fly Tiers will hold a Charity Tye-A-Thon on January 23 for the Tiffany Johnson Benefit Fund. We have a really strong list of fly tiers lined up for the event, plus some big name tiers contributing flies to the Tye-A-Thon Raffle.  (January 23, 2010)

There are many ways to help out including volunteering to tie at the event, donating flies if you cannot make it along on the 23rd and buying tickets in the Major Fly Raffle, or simply walking in and supporting the tiers.”  Tiffany Johnson Benefit

The fog of the holidays is over. The new year is before us and with that is a reminder to help those that are right in front of you. Cut a check and/or send flies for auction to:  TJBF, c/o Mountain River Fly Shop, 1200 West Main No 7, Cotter AR 72626. The Benefit is January 23rd. Make a move this week so the organizers can use this lead time to stage this important event.

Man Made Fishing Experiences (When Rivers Are Constructed Experiences?)

Private waters? Somewhat guaranteed success when non-private waters are raped, pillaged and mismanaged for over harvest. It is all chaotic as certain groups (dare I say which ones?) over harvest without a hint of enforcement. So, what happens when everything becomes programmed, predictable, sterile, almost like a golf driving range with no hope of ever making it onto the course? One man’s opinion seems depressingly possible.

Oh what the hell…let me call for this: would ODFW (Oregon) make some damn out reach effort to educate via signage, literature or enforcement for Russians, Asians, Mexicans? Seriously, why dance around some PC bullshit. It is right there. Over harvesting, snagging. No regard for hatchery v. wild or numbers. Worse than a Power Bait deranged retiree in his folding chair with a full cooler of fish up at the camper. Ok done.
