    Minnesota is giving $2.1 million to its local branch of Trout Unlimited to continue restoring fish and wildlife habitat on 13 streams and lakes across the state. Habitat will be restored or improved on six northern trout waters, two metropolitan area streams and five streams in the Driftless area of south-east Minnesota.” More than 19 miles of habitat and a dozen streams have been improved in the past two years. A good lesson for Trout Unlimited chapters elsewhere on how to work with state authorities to improve fishing for mututal benefit. Full story here.

     

    About

    Editor and publisher of Classic Angling magazine. Founder member of UK Angling Writers' Association and current chairman. Former winner of Writer of the Year. I wrote a weekly angling column for The Independent for 23 years, having previously written columns for The Guardian and Sunday Mirror. If it swims, I'll fish for it: marlin or mackerel, trout or tench, salmon or snook. I've written several books on fishing, from one for the Duke of Edinburgh's award to the notorious Catchmore Sharks (don't look at the pictures) and Bob Nudd's autobiography, How to be the World's Best Fisherman. I love exotic travel for fishing (been to Mongolia and Ecuador, the Great Barrier Reef and Arunachal Pradesh) and wish I could afford to do such trips more often. My favourite fish? Anything with fins, though I have a special love for mahseer, and I'm chairman of The Mahseer Trust.
