It has come to my attention as I have talked with other fisherman or other outdoors-men how little is understood by most about the native fish species that call CT home, and how those who know more than I need to be heard. This is something I want to fix. And how I plan to fix it is by writing a book. At first I wanted to just do a few articles for fishing magazines but I just couldn't fit what I wanted into a short piece, so I'm going long. This is going to be a long project.
I would much appreciate if any of those who read my blog could help. I'm looking for commercial fisherman, sport fisherman, guides, conservationists, and politicians whose work or lives are entwined with any and all native species. Any contacts would be so, so helpful. That includes people who fish or guide on waters out of state that still have strong populations of eels, Atlantic salmon, or brookies (including salters).
As I do work for this book I will add little updates, mostly short. I have to save most everything for the book. But some extra pictures and a few of my thoughts and experiences throughout this project will be shared here.
