New England, New Zealand, and Salters
While taking a drive the other day, scouting a new stream I came across a few of these. Maple trees tapped and collecting sap the way they did it years ago. Most syrup producers use newer methods of plastic lines and larger collecting sites. Looking around I noticed there were 4 trees with buckets. As I got closer I could the sap dripping at what appeared to be a good pace. Perhaps the owner does not do this for a living, but just for his own use. This is a sweet time in New England.
This is a wonderful DVD. It's about two anglers who stumble upon a cabin in New Zealand. They find a journal that belonged to an angler from years past. Great brown trout footage, as well as a look at wild New Zealand.
The Sea Run Brook Trout Coalition, I have posted a link below to its home page. They are doing great work with this marvelous char. From Maine, to Long Island, with Connecticut, and the Massachusetts Islands. Check out their latest newsletter.
