The coronavirus may change fishing as we know it

Ironically, 2020 is “The Year of the Rat.” Given how 2020 has unfolded so far, I actually consider that to be an insult to rats.

Everything is a little different these days, thanks to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and how and where we fish should be different, too.

‘Trout Uber’ to the rescue during coronavirus classroom closures in NYC

“When school closed, students expressed concern for the wellbeing of their trout. They were extremely disappointed when they realized that we would not be taking our trip up to Ward Pound Ridge to release them. They had been looking forward to this trip. So were the other 4th grade teachers. It is always the highlight trip of the year. They were very excited on Earth Day to watch the video of the release that you sent us. That made them proud. And there was an overall feeling of relief that they had been safely introduced into their natural habitat. Thank You!!!!” – Ms. Sims, PS 84, Brooklyn
