In pursuit of trout and solitude,
Charles Lindsay immerses himself in the

NEW AREAS OPENED FOR ATLANTIC SALMON SOUTH OF GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN.
The River Lindome, which has been closed for the last 50 years, reopened today for spawning runs.
An area of 18000 square meters suitable for spawning and smolt will hopefully add new support to the threatened spieces of sea trout and salmon.
A SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM WAS DEVELOPED TO ENHANCE A FISHERY.
It was the first scientific stocking program to use radio-tagged fish
in Sweden. This was to determine if the habitat in river Lögde was ideal for a program
with supplementary stocking over a short period of time to raise the future
population of brown trout.
A newly released report has shown some very positive results. It has
also been confirmed that this habitat, which from a scientists view is very
similar to the habitats in the Kola peninsula where big trout thrive in
large numbers, really is suitable for a much larger number of fish than
local anglers have allowed in the past prior to a C&R-program in Lögde
River was developed.
This initial "strengthening" of stock is therefore not planned
to continue, because as the report and biological data have shown, there
will be no need for it in the future.
The fish do thrive in the area.
Furthermore there are vast areas of wilderness around, with a large system
of lakes ideal for pike. A fish regarded as trash fish there and not fished
on at all. So hefty giants lurk there just waiting for your fly!
To this comes the unique co operation with the Saami people that will
allow some visitors to fish previously not fished areas in a Helifishing
program. There the fish are brown trout, and char mainly at about 2-3kilos.
So if you don't get any prompt answers from me when accessing my site,
please have patience because I'm fishing this area between June 15-22.
ONE OF THE MOST
The cod, says Kurlansky, "is not a nice guy": fecund, voracious, omnivorous - "if ever a fish were made to endure,
it is the Atlantic cod. But it has among its predators man, an open-mouthed species greedier than the cod".

ENDANGERED FISHERIES ANNOUNCED
The Federation of Fly Fishers today
announced the five most endangered
fisheries in the nation at its international conference in Gatlinburg,
Tennessee. These fish habitats face immediate danger, with some of the
world's most prized species on the verge of extinction.
The five fisheries and the reason
each is endangered includes:
1. Wolf River, Wisconsin - Potential new mining hazard.
2. Crooked Creek, Arkansas - Existing Gravel Mining degrading water quality.
3. Big Spring Run, Pennsylvania - Improper Hatchery operations creating
poor water quality.
4. Snake River, Idaho - Federal Dams impeding the migration of salmon and
5. San Joaquin River, CA - Devastation of steelhead by development,
logging and mining.
These endangered fisheries represent
a snapshot of the appalling state of
many of America's fish habitats. The threats to species like bass and
salmon, and their ecosystems, are urgent and steps must be taken now to
prevent further irreversible decline.
RARE WINNER OF THIS MILLENNIUM
In Djursholm Stockholm the Billecart-Salmon
1959 recently was voted to be the Champagne of this Millennium. This means
that together with the almost extinct wild Atlantic-Salmon, it is one of
the most rare "Salmons" of the world. Only some 20 odd bottles
left. How many wild atlantic salmons there still are is continously under
But we fly fishers know them to
be too few. Don´t we?

AMERICAN HERITAGE MUSEUM HOLDS AN INCREDIBLE COLLECTION OF HISTORIC FLYFISHING,
HUNTING AND OUTDOOR BOOKS IN TOPPAN LIBRARY
For interested fellow anglers, in related info, the University
of Wyoming's American Heritage Museum holds an incredible collection of
historic flyfishing, hunting, and outdoor books.
Books such as "Walden" (1st edition, 1854) by Henry David Thoreau,
"The Complete Angler" (6th edition, 1797) by Izaak Walton,
and "Favorite Flies" (1892) by Mary Orvis-Marbury
are held in the museum's Toppan Library, named for a
Jackson Hole resident whose widow, Clara, donated the collection.
Of the many rare angling books present, perhap the extremely rare
copy of "Dry Fly Entomology, First De Luxe edition" (1897) by
M. Halford with its thick pages that are indented in the center, or with
margins if you will, which allows the book to hold actual dry flies tied
in the 19th century is the most impressive.
If you're passing through Laramie, WY, to fish or en route elsewhere,
the Toppan Library's definitely worth the stop.
For further information on the collection, or to make reservations
to view the collection, you can contact collection curator Anne Marie Lane
at 307-766-2565 or at e-mail address email@example.com.
