Today marks a day that will forever be etched in the history books of time. A day when the voice of the few who stood up to the big-pocketed tyrants that closed over 400 public rivers and streams were finally heard. Today marks the day when honorable Judge Pullan ruled that HB 141 is in fact unconstitutional! Today marks the day when Utah’s public rivers and streams were freed and returned to their rightful owner, everyone.
Thank you to all those people, families, attorneys, editors, manufactures, and those defenders who lurk in the shadows for you’re hard work, sacrifice, blood, sweat and tears. So many of you gave, donated, consulted, consoled, believed in and supported this movement to fight the good fight and to take a stand for public stream access and rights. I couldn’t be more proud of you all for coming together for the greater good.
For now, the battle was won, many more to come. Remain vigilant. The time to get involved is NOW!
The new issue of The FlyFish Journal is finally on the newsstands! I’m very pleased a few of my images made it to print. Big thanks to all those that helped create the images, without you, none of these would be possible…especially the streamer ear-ring, ha! Head down to your local shop and grab yourself a copy!
