Obama To Make Colorado's Browns Canyon a Nat'l Monument




SALIDA - President Barack Obama plans to designate the Browns Canyon National Monument in Colorado on Thursday. Browns Canyon is near Salida.

"This designation will provide permanent protection that is long overdue for this incredible area," Keith Baker, Executive Director of Friends of Browns Canyon, said. "Residents and visitors to Chaffee County have always understood that Browns Canyon is a national treasure. The national monument designation is supported by hunters and anglers, businesses and conservation groups, veterans and youth groups."

A broad cross-section of local groups and businesses have supported the national monument designation for Browns Canyon, including the Colorado and Arkansas River Outfitters Associations, Chaffee County Visitors Bureau, the Salida Business Alliance, sportsmen, youth, faith, veterans and Hispanic groups, local businesses and county commissioners. Recent polling from the Colorado College showed that 96 percent of Coloradans support the protection and conservation of natural areas. As of right now, Browns Canyon says there "will not be a charge for visitors under national monument status."

Meet Another Trout Fisherman Named Tradd!

http://traddsflies.blogspot.com/

Check Out This Kid!

Many years ago I got bit by Fly Fishing literally and have never looked back. That was close to 25 years ago late into my teens -hope that didn't give away my age! I thought that growing up in South Georgia afforded me the ability Bass fish in some of the most amazing water around. It did but so did my trips to North Georgia & Wyoming chasing trout and learning some new skills.

I came across an amazing young talent recently that I'm sure has far surpassed the experience I had while growing up in the South learning to Fly Fish. Funny enough, we have another Trout Fanatic named Tradd! Yes there are more Tradd's out there and if you live in the South, you would be amazed how many are fisherman also.

If get the chance, make sure you take the time to check out Tradd's Flies for not only some incredible patterns, fly fishing tips, but also impressive fish pictures that will have my tenured fishing buddies jealous.

Anytime you can come across someone with his talent and experience at such a young age, the future is bright for the Sport of Fly Fishing. Make sure to also checkout out Tradd at some fly tying events throughout the South this year, he's definitely someone you can learn from.

Great Job Tradd and Keep it Up!
