That connection from hand to rod to reel to line to wild trout, steelhead or salmon is far more than just a simple link to a fish – it’s a primeval bond between us and the river, us and the land, us and the earth. It’s an intimate relationship that inspires and compels us to cherish, protect and restore all of it that we possibly can – because we don’t even want to imagine a world without it. Every day is Earth Day among TU volunteers, members and staff and I am proud to be part of the team. Thanks to all of you for making this world a better place. Happy Earth Day!
