What I Did On My Summer Vacation:
My heart goes out to everyone on the East Coast impacted by Hurricane Irene.  After screening “The River Why” June 4 at National River Rally, River Network’s annual conclave, we drove from Charleston, SC to Manchester, VT.  Such lush and beautiful country the whole trip.

When I saw Vermont’s swollen rivers on the news today, it made me think about my new friends in Manchester, VT – - especially those at the American Museum of Fly Fishing.  We were back there in early June to attend the opening of “A Graceful Rise: Women in Fly Fishing Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow” .  It is a gorgeous exhibit that honors the key roles women have played in fly-fishing history and how they continue to inspire anglers today.  In attendance:  Joan Wolff, Fanny Krieger, Diana Rudolph, Kathryn Maroun and so many more incredible women.  They included me and “The River Why” in the exhibit.  I keep joking that I’m now old enough to be a museum artifact, but in truth, I am deeply honored to be part of such an amazing group.  The exhibit runs through April 2012, so be sure to check it out.

All good wishes to those still wading through the after effects of the storm.
