My Article Appears In California Fly Fisher (and, The Klamath Dams Save My Ass)

By Tom Chandler 5/11/2012

The Underground's nervous fingers produced an 1800 word article on the Klamath River Dam Removal issue for California Fly Fisher, which will hit the streets very soon.

Covering that human-driven mess in 1800 words means taking a few shortcuts, but overall, I'm happy with the article, which each and every one of you should run out and buy this instant.

Outside of the check I received for writing CA Fly Fisher's "The Good Fight" section, it's clear I benefited from the article in other ways; Little M recently used a word that raised the L&T's eyebrows, and I only escaped punishment through clever use of reasonable doubt:

"She must have learned it during my many discussions of Klamath "dam" removal. Yeah, that's the ticket."

See? Fly fishing's not just good for your soul. It's good for your health as well.

See you practicing not saying the wrong things, Tom Chandler

As the author of the decade leading fly fishing blog Trout Underground, Tom believes that fishing is not about measuring the experience but instead of about having fun. As a staunch environmentalist, he brings to the Yobi Community thought leadership on environmental and access issues facing us today.

"Bait" would have been a lot easier from a spousal perspective. At least she didn't say "beadhead nymph" which really would have indicated developmental issues...
At least Little M didn't say..."bait"!!
Yes, in one recruitment paragraph, Anderson touches on three of my Big Issues With Most Fly Fishing Magazines. Then again, it's what you'd expect from a fly fishing magazine apparently founded as a result of listening to the Sex Pistols... (no, I don't know the whole story).
What a great description of the mag! "No articles on Christmas Island..." Somehow I had never noticed that. Looking forward to the article.
