So on this country's birthday, if you are a fly fisherman, take a bit to thank the greats that made this the sport it is today. And don't forget, we have a lot of work to do to keep this country great. Fight for public lands. Fight to protect endangered species. Fight for clean water, clean air, and clean land. Fight to prevent greedy commercial interests from depleting stocks and destroying habitat.
And don't forget to get out on the water and enjoy what this country has to offer, preferably instead of burning things and drinking excessively. That's what Kirk and I did this morning. The first thing, not the last two. Ironically we were targeting mostly European fish species, but this country is a melting pot.
