Interview: Lee Spencer
I almost passed this up and am so glad I gave it a second glance. MidCurrent's Marshall Cutchin brings us a fascinating interview with Lee Spencer, who has spent more than 14 years with his dog Sis, camped next to a pool on the North Umpqua's Steamboat Creek to observe and document the behavior of the wild steelhead, and other species, both animal and plant, that visit or inhabit this locale.
You may or may not have a love affair with steelhead, but listening to Lee talk about what he has observed is amazing. Marshall and Lee are easy to listen to, his observations give us lots to think about and he has to be a really interesting guy. Thank you MidCurrent, Marshall, and Lee.
A Day in the Life of an Outdoorsman During COVID-19
I came across this short story written by Tom Gilliland in the May issue of the Frontiers's Destination Newsletter. Tom wrote it in early spring, with expectations of Covid ending soon. It is now October and the future is still uncertain. Remember last spring? Many of us thought we'd be “out the other side” by now. I know we did. Tom, nice job, but we may need a sequel. Hope you got ahead of the beavers!
Tip for Line Twist
Our friend, Russ Miller, came for a visit a few years ago and showed us a quick and easy way to eliminate line twist. If this has ever happened to you, the tip in this short 2-minute video will come in handy.
