Roderick Haig-Brown speech at the Flyfisher's Club of Oregon
A proposal is made at the Flyfishers Club of Oregon for a national fly fishing organization with the goals of protecting fishing resources and providing education on the subject of fly fishing. The club presents Roderick Haig-Brown with a citation of lifelong contribution to the sport of fly fishing. Roderick Haig-Brown comments on the creation of various fly fishing organizations in North America and the burgeoning numbers of sports fishermen, necessitating greater attention to the waters as well as to fish stocks. He recommends support of creation of manmade lakes and fisheries along with the protection and preservation of wild fish and their streams in order to distribute the pressure on the resources more evenly. He expresses optimism in the future as regards damming, pollution, and stream management. He emphasizes the public ownership of these natural resources and the need to chronicle the developments, materials, and literature peculiar to the North American continent, nevertheless pointing out certain difficulties in the collection of artifacts. Audio available in-house at the Center for Pacific Northwest Studies.
