As many of us have an interest in the Northeastern Coastal fishery, we have an obligation to contribute to CCA's cause. CCA urges all coastal anglers to appeal to Gov. Cellucci for appointment of two excellent candidates to the Massachusetts Marine Fisheries Commision: Colin "Rip" Cunningham and Mark Weissman.

Please check out the notice <!--http--><a href="" target="_blank">HERE</a><!--url--> and send an email, fax or letter to Mr. Cellucci ASAP!

For more details, check out the website and/or contact <a href="">Bob Desplaines </a><!--email-->

Ok, I'm in. This is gonna cost you Juro. I'll see you on the Cape one morning in early June or something. I joined up. $25 bucks, cheap.Turns out the North Shore Chapter President lives in my town (Reading). So maybe I will meet a new angler.

I also sent the following email to Gov. Cellucci at <a href="">Click Here</a><!--url-->

Dear Governor Cellucci,

I am a lifelong resident of Massachusetts and my family has been here since the
1600s. I have always supported your administration and it's efforts. I ask
you now to support something for me. I am an avid fly fisherman and have recently
got involved with helping to preserve our recreational fishing heritage as New
Englanders and as family members. That is why I ask you to support:

Colin "Rip" Cunningham and Mark Weissman for an appointment to the Massachusetts Marine Fisheries Commission (MFC). Recreational anglers contribute millions to the economy and need a voice within that body. Thank you for your consideration on this matter.
