The next generation

Support for the fish camp came from several TU chapters, including the Croton Watershed Chapter, which Barb and I had helped to found. The Cortland Company, the Rise Rod Company and the Temple Fork Company have all contributed rods to be used by these students. On their last day, the students will all receive a rod-building kit so that they can put together their very own fly rod. Thus, they will be able to continue to discover the pleasures of fly fishing on their own.

Hats off to Kurt Nelson, the commander in chief of this operation. Somehow Kurt always manages to herd all the cats together and get them to the proper place on time each day. The lads and lassies are fortunate to have a sharp, enthusiastic fellow like Kurt running the show.
