 Elmer checks out changes at Burrage Pond.

 Local wildlife to be affected. State gives grant to study water flow through Burrage Pond wildlife area.

    Elmer holds up one of Burrage Pond's senior members, a mature Northern Water Snake.

 "They look dark on land but the colors show up when you see them in the water.Mar-e and I have seen this particular snake quite often over the last several years. This is the first time I was able to handle it. ' said Elmer. "He was caught on the bank and got to cold to slither away. Max my black lab saw him first. I'm hoping the proposed changes don't ruin the wildlife already here."

Larry J. Ryan appointed Harbormaster of Rockland, Massachusetts

"There isn't a lot for a Harbormaster to do in Rockland  and of course most laugh at the idea. But grant monies may be available to the Town of Rockland because we have one." said Larry, former Chairperson of the Rockland Board of Selectmen. "Now my wife, Mary, and I both carry badges." laughs Larry. "Oh Yeah, Reed's Pond is officially closed for clamming on orders of the Harbormaster and hold my calls. I'll be in Duxbury exercising my shellfish permit. See you at the beach."

Mar-e and Elmer take a day off from fishing to catch a glimpse of the Volvo Ocean Race vessels going through their paces in Boston Harbor.

A nice windy day was just what the doctor ordered.

New views across Rose Kennedy Park. Central Artery no longer obstructs the view!

make big splash with Carp Anglers Group

 at Great Meadows Wildlife Refuge in Sudbury, Massachusetts.

A fishing clinic was held at Great Meadows Wildlife Refuge in Sudbury, Massachusetts. Elmer in his role as Co-Chair of the Massachusetts division of Carp Anglers group held an informational booth touting carp fishing as an excellent freshwater adventure. We also had a peg set up on the river that was manned by Greg Budd and Chris, who did an outstanding job teaching carp fishing the many people we sent their way. Corey and his wife Felecia, along with Marius Albota and his dad from Romania, helped make a good time even better.

Thanks to Susan Russo, who set it all up, for an outstanding day.

Susan was a great help to us and is quite an asset for the Great Meadows Refuge.

Elmer hams it up with the staff and some of the many people that passed by today.

Fly fishing and fly tying, spin cast practice, face painting and live fishing filled out a beautiful day for all the participants.
