Got an email this morning from my good friend Cheryl Daigle, the outreach coordinator of the Penobscot River Revival,  inviting me to be a vendor/participant in the ceremony at the Veazie dam site july 22. It's the day they breach the Veazie dam . It's the second dam to be removed from the Penobscot since the start of the Penobscot restoration project. The Great Works dam has been demolished and soon the bypass around the Howland dam will be completed allowing unfettered access to over 1000 miles of spawning habitat for alwifes and blueback herring(along with many other sea  run fish!) I've been a huge supporter of this most worthy project. I've given talks and and written an editorial to the BDN in support. I led Umaine researchers on a field trip to explain what is going on in the bay and what I think will happen after the project is completed. I go to every event and speak to anyone who will listen about it. I've gotten heat from the Downeast guides who are mistakenly against the St Croix allowing access to alwifes. All the hard work of everyone involved is very close to being finished! The day starts with the dam breach at 10 am with many varied activities till 4 pm and then a concert, bbq and remarks and stories from people that use the river. I'll try to be the first one to speak. I am the guy who desperately needs a healthy river for my business! You guys that know me know I can flap my gums with the best of them and can't wait to speak in support of the restoration. Thanks to Cheryl for the invite and I hope no one calls to go fishing on the 22nd!! I encourage any and all of you to attend some or all of the festivities....guys, this is a really big deal. The changes that will happen within a few years will be astounding!

Getting ready for a new season of guiding. My phone and email are getting active. Taking inquiry's almost daily...July is already starting to fill up...Now I have to get the boats all finished up and ready to go! I am awaiting a call from John Holyoke, head outdoors writer for the Bangor Daily News. He wants to do a piece in the quarterly outdoors publication that is free and goes statewide! I already sent him some shark fishing action photos!

Spring fishing is just around the corner!

WOW! Spring has started for me. 1st weekend in March found me at the Scarborough Maine Cabelas teaching kids how to tie saltwater flies. The Maine Charter Boat Captains Association does this every year since Cabelas opened. Great fun and lots of happy kids!
The next weekend I was at The Eastern Maine Sportsman Show in Orono, Maine. This is the oldest sportsman show in Maine ( over 75 years ). For the last eight years I've given two seminars at the show. Fishing the Penobscot River and saltwater fishing on Penobscot Bay and beyond. I teach folks how to become better smallmouth fishermen on the river and also the various opportunities on the salt, including tuna and shark!  New this year was a seminar on how to get into custom rod building. I gave a quick lesson on equipment and techniques so anglers can build their own . I've built around 75 various rods ( spin, fly and conventional) so it was fun to pass on some knowledge.

Next up is LL Beans spring weekend . I'll be manning a table for the charter capts. at that event!

And to cap off a fun March I'll be heading for Grand Lake Stream the weekend before Monday April 1st  for my annual trip to my buddy Joe Blooms camp for a weekend of food, cigars, good bourbon and fly fishing bright and early opening day.

As the season gets rolling I'll post more and more on my blog and also my facebook pages!
