The Environmental Protection Agency is about as effective at protecting the environment as Spray on Hair is at covering up bald spots.
Here’s a report from Slate discussing the refusal of both the Bush and Obama administrations to publish the results of a vast study on rising sea levels. Here’s another two on the censorship, restriction and suppression of studies on the fracking industry that has been going on for years.
The landowner didn’t think they’d catch anything since he hadn’t seen any fish. They patiently waited for the trout to reveal themselves and caught quite a few on dry flies.
A guy by the name of Nelson Minar spent a few weeks putting together a vector map of US waterways as a part of a tutorial for software engineers. This is the result:
To learn more about the map, and the process required to create it, take a look at Nelson’s Weblog. To view the map in full detail, with the ability to zoom in, see his public Flickr set.
To whom it may concern,
I was recently reviewing the “Biggest Fish Caught in Pennsylvania” (2012) page on your website. Among the list of largest catches reported last year, I noticed something quite curious.
Angler: Zachory Boozel Water: Lake Arthur
This got me wondering which route a marine striped bass would take from the ocean to Lake Arthur, since as I figure it the two are separated by at least 300 miles and countless impassable dams. That’s quite a journey!
I look forward to your explanation.
Thanks for your attention in this matter, tight lines, etc.
A woman had a much needed day off of work and decided to take some of her younger relatives fishing. So she packed up the one small fishing rod she owned along with some hooks and stopped by the store to pick up two dozen nightcrawlers on her way to the local community pond.
She soon arrived at the pond and picked out a nice spot where she and the children could sit comfortably. As she was setting up her rod to fish, she couldn’t help but overhear a particularly obnoxious man speaking out loud, despite being unaccompanied. “Worms are for women and children,” he bellowed to no one in particular. Right.
Ready for some Serious Fishing, he didn’t have any time for people out at the old fishing hole with no goal other than to have some fun and try to relax a little. So, decked out from head to toe in the latest in Real Men’s Fishing Gear®, he got as close to them as he possibly could (short of actually standing on their toes) and started tossing out his enormous lure, along with any semblance of etiquette. After all, what right do mere amateurs have to choice waters? And if someone is already fishing there, the waters must be choice. Why else would they be there? Why should he fish the substandard waters represented by the other 97 percent of the shoreline? Just because they were devoid of people? Forget that. Read more →
