Salmon fly fishery on the Penobscot?

State proposes salmon fishery reopening on the Penobscot River.
An Atlantic Samon Commission plan to allow a limited flyfishing season will be released in February with public hearings in March.
Atlantic Salmon Commission says studies show a one month winter flyfishing only catch and release fishery won't seriously harm recovery efforts especially as survivability is believed to be better when the water and air is cold, than warm.

NGO's Atlantic Salmon Federation and Trout unlimited have waded in. ASF "studying the plan", but Trout Unlimited is voicing doubts about the wisdom of a fishery in the midst of a restoration. But reserving judgement.
Penobscot River salmon not on ESA. Under a state/fedeal agreement, fishing was drasticly curtailed. State official
Pat Keliher agrees Maine salmon are not restored but says a case can be made for the public awareness positivity of a very limited fishery.

Hi. Came accross this site today - fly tying. I was amazed by the pics in the pdf they're giving away, so I'm looking for someone who knows if this guy is on the level, before I buy this fly fishing training manual.

Hi, As part of a sports related degree, I'm doing some research into some Fishing related search 'keywords' e.g. 'fishing knots'. I've used fishing knots to contact people but I need more input. Any suggestions on where to look?
Thnx

Hi, I'm doing a college survey based upon various aspects of Fishing and I need to ask anglers from around the world to complete a short questionnaire. There are several themes including carp fishing. I'm using this site (carp fishing) to contact anglers, do you know of any other ways to do this?
Many thanks

Hi, As part of a case study for a potential employer, I need to contact people who are interested in fishing and who routinely search the internet for fishing related information. The focus is on keyword ('fishing rod' for example) selection. I've found people via fishing rod but would like to talk to more. Have you any ideas how to contact more people?
Cheers
