AFF Tip of the Week
Week of May 14, 2007 - One of the greatest conservation organizations is Trout Unlimited. American Flyfisherman is proud to support this organization and their premier educational component for schools, "Trout in the Classroom". AFF has been associated with this excellent program for the last few months. On Friday May 11, Sam and I witnessed the sixth grade students from the Memorial Middle School in Middlefield release the Brook Trout they had raised in their classroom. What a fantastic learning experience for these young conservation minded students. On the students quest to bring these eggs in November to the release in May there was a tremendous sense of accomplishment. Meanwhile, the teachers incorporated Writing, Art, Science , environment and Conservation principals as they utilized aquariums and chillers supplied by their local TU chapter, eggs and food supplied by CT DEP and CT Fisheries Division.
