Fly Fisherman, Aquatic and Environmental Scientist and
I hope you enjoy this site and get something good out of it. I've been fly fishing for
over 40 years and we will leave it at that! Since I was very young man I've been casting a fly rod and turning
over rocks in streams to see what those fish were feeding on. What I've seen in the last 30 plus years saddens me
greatly. We are losing. We are losing our streams and rivers and no one seems to really care from the fishing
industry to the so called environmental groups. More money is wasted on studies which amount to nothing in both the
scientific and political arena than I would care to mention.
Most environmental organizations have sold out and fly fishing groups like Trout Unlimited and the
Federation of Fly Fisherman have their own problems and are basically out manned and out gunned going up against
corporate America and government that is owned by the polluters.
This site is about brook trout fly fishing and everything that goes with it. Contrary to what many
have said you can't separate the fishing from the ecology because it will hit you right in the face the next time
you go out.
As many of you know you can find out more about me at www.eugenemacri.com or www.riverandgamekeeper.org. You can also stop at my super site:
www.flyfisher.com. Yes, I do give fly fishing instruction and guiding
and there are few people like me who are both a scientist and professional fly fisherman. I am also available
for seminars, class instructions and speaking engagements. Just drop me a line and have your group or club join
me in fighting for brook trout and all trout as well as our the protection of our streams and rivers.
