Everytime I read the news about Pebble Mine, my heart just sink. Especially when the industry people or officers try to explain the wealth and the job opportunity they will provide to the community. Sad! Is this really a story of local people battling their enviroment with the mining industry? Or this is our responsibility of take care our environment for future generations. In my opinion, there is no bounday between Alaskan and US, we should not just sit the problem aside and just watch it.
"No one shaped the public's vision of extinct mammals and dinosaurs more than Charles R. Knight (1874-1953)" His pioneering techniques - studying living animals, then reconstructing ancient animals by building scale models of bones, muscles, and skin. - NGM 2003
It's really exciting to see the illustrations get into one of my favorite Flyfishing Magazine - Fly Rod & Reel. Thank you! My Friends! Without your encouragement, there is no way I can do this! : ) Special thanks to Wadin' Boot!(Michael Doherty - 2008 Robert Travel Fly-Fishing Writing Award Winner) It's a honor to have my illustration to go along with your beautiful writing!
A good friend of mine just start a blogging business... what a great news! He has tons of great photos... now, instead of begging him email me some photos... I can just lay on my couch and turn on my computer... then all the great photos will show up in front of me! Great work, Cameron! Bring it on! : ) http://thefiberglassmanifesto.blogspot.com/
To me, a great photo is Not necessary has to be sharp, colorful or in good composition... however, a good photo should be in catching the magic moment. This is the photo with that essential magical element! Great photos and reports from NW here it remind me all the great time fishing with friends! Thanks and keep up all the great work!
A good bird is a dead bird?! For European starling in the US, this statment hold true actually! Those invasive species are mutiplying too much and start to threaten our native species. I would love to buy some of the pelts and tied some good ol wetflies! Thank you Starling!
A steelheader told me: Good man's hands are on the oars! This is so true...I might add actually: good fishing day is on the oars..
I floated with Grizz on the mighty snake river. It was the best day fishing ever, we had a blast! There was times we both watched the dryfly drift along the shoreline and shout it out loud together "eat it! eat it! eaaaaat it!" Then, BOOOOOM... fish came from nowhere... exploded on "our" fly. (or....sometimes "a nose" sloooowly stick out of the surface to sip the fly).
When I said it is "our" fly floating on the surface...Actually, he is the man doing the most work! Grizz used his oars to match the shoreline, match the currents, match the presentation directions. All I need to do is cast the fly infront of me and "watch"... and he will handle everything! I think I want to be a good fisherman like him... I want to learn as much as I can to roar a drift boat!! Thanks for the great lesson! Grizz! You are the man!! (to be continued)
The immigrants, crowded into the damp hold of the German steamship Werra, were not particularly welcome when they made landfall in the United States on February 24, 1883. Xenophobic feelings were running high, with many Americans worried that the Europeans would displace residents already struggling to stay afloat.
The critics were quite nasty about the newcomers, variously described as scaly, voracious, monstrous and homely. They stole food from natives. They had sharp teeth. They ate their young. They were greenish yellow with red spots. They were fish.
Specifically, the fish disembarking the Werra that February were trout-to-be in the form of 80,000 fertilized eggs from a hard-fighting strain of Salmo trutta, the European brown trout, which makes its first appearance in Roman literature about a.d. 200, swims through Izaak Walton's Compleat Angler and Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, inspires Franz Schubert's "Trout" quintet of 1819 and establishes a beachhead in North America with this 1883 shipment.(continued)
I am a biologist grew up with a fishing rod in my hands. I have been fortunate enough to embrace my love of art and science in my career. Most of my free time were well spent in the nature, either studying bird behavior or chasing variety of fish with fly rods. My favorite art medium is watercolors, I love the natural and spontaneous feel created by watercolor pigments. I am currently a post-doctoral research fellow at Harvard University.
