Sign the Dam petition!

DamNation: We can make a difference

Sorry for shouting the title of this blog post... let me calm down and start by saying, you need to watch the documentary DamNation.  I knew dams were an out of date means of creating energy, but it was enlightening to see just how not "green" hydro energy is in comparison to the abundance of solar and wind.

I was also was aware of the impact that dams have on our fisheries and landscapes but I was blown away at how many dams we have in America!  There are approximately 75,000 dams over 3 feet tall in America! INSANE!  Bottom line is dams are out of date, unneeded and have harmed not only our fisheries, but the American landscape.

Watch the film on Netflix, iTunes or buy the DVD/Blueray through the link above.  Please watch and make your own Dam conclusion!  Hopefully you will join us in signing the Dam petition.

We Will Always Remember - Jason Jones

A local Hero fell in battle Monday, making the ultimate sacrifice for his country and his brothers. His name is Jason Jones; he and his father Jay Jones are avid fly-fishers.  Luke was a year behind Jason in high school and they spent many days together running from soccer practice to the football field.  I had the privilege of being one of the coaches on Jason's soccer team during his high school days and I also coached his sister Lizzy.  I can tell you this with certainty - you would be hard pressed to find a nicer family.  My heart breaks for them. 

I remember Jason's work ethic, his resolve, his leadership and his smile.  He was loved by his peers and everyone I can think of for that matter.  He was tough yet kind, intense but respectful.  He was intellectual and very funny.  He was the kind of guy everyone liked and yet he would stick up for and defend the weakest around him.  When his father told Luke and I that Jason had earned his Green Beret...I honestly wasn't surprised in the least bit.  He was the kind of guy who would excel at everything or anything. He was our country's best.  He was and is a hero.  Our hero.    
Jay sent me this picture of his son Jason (on the left) and his buddies hanging out on a fishing trip.
This man died serving our country...please take a moment to pray for his family and read his obituary here.  And Jay if you read this...whenever you are ready to pick up a rod or need the sanctity and solitude of a stream we will be here for you.

As Luke said recently about Jason, "You will be greatly missed and we are eternally grateful for your selflessness and service to this country. Now find Caleb fly fishing in heaven and save me a spot."

Save us all a spot friend.  We will see you soon.
