May the Rivers Never Sleep . . .

. . . by Bill and John McMillan. I just heard from Bill, that this new, long awaited book is now available from Amato and Amazon. I expect mine shortly. It promises to be one of the two most important books focussing on our anadromous fisheries in a long, long time. The other is Topher Browne's Atlantic Salmon Magic, published earlier in the year.

Following is a brief description from the publisher.

Bill and John McMillan, father and son, were initially drawn to rivers and salmon through angling. Following the footsteps of Canadian author and conservationist Roderick Haig-Brown, they gradually transitioned to a deeper learning about the lives of rivers through snorkeling. May the Rivers Never Sleep is a song of thanks to Haig-Brown's vision of rivers as calendars of life and places of revelation. The McMillan's river calendar-depicted through writings and photography was shaped by thousands of hours angling, observing and snorkeling to document the diversity and patterns of river life above and below water. From winter steelhead to water ouzel, their perspective is that rivers are only ever-wakeful because of the wild creatures within. As wild fish continue to diminish however, the lives of rivers remain unclear. This book is the McMillan's wake-up call to nurture at all costs the natural resilience of wild-fish populations and breadth of life they support so that rivers remain places of revelation for future anglers and scientists, as they have for the McMillan family.

Awesome Bill - I suppose the early sedge pupae are starting to show on the rocks in the morning and summer runs are showing some blush on the cheeks.

Hey are you headed out for fall steel this year?

Well Bill, I hope we can coordinate our OP trips this year. Last year was very good it seemed for both of us... and the salmon runs are strong this year so fingers crossed that it's a sign of good ocean conditions for winter steelhead.

Good luck on the Methow, I have a skater you should try there...
