DSF Breakthrough: 14x Higher Return Rate for Maine Atlantic salmon
Updated: Apr 27
“Remember the Maine” goes the saying, but soon it may be “Remember Maine’s salmon rivers” with the breakthrough work of the Peter Gray Parr Project (PGPP)
We're very grateful to Ben Carmichael and New England on the Fly for covering the CNN mini-documentary about DSF's work in wild Atlantic salmon preservation. He has been a strong supporter of DSF, and has shared stories of our work for many years. https://newenglandonthefly.com/2021/03/16/dsf-breakthrough-14x-higher-return-rate-for-maine-atlantic-salmon/
New England On The Fly is a very popular blog and fishing enthusiast website. New England on the Fly is about fly fishing. It focuses on New England — the issues, the people, the waters, and the fish — but takes in the sport as a whole.
Ben has written for various outlets about fly fishing and related environmental issues, including The Boston Globe, The Drake, Chasing Silver, Eastern Fly Fishing, Swing The Fly, The Fly Fish Journal, TheAtlantic Salmon Journal, On Earth, The Angler’s Club Journal, and a collection of pieces for the Catskill Fly Fishing Center & Museum. He's also edited a few books on topics related to Atlantic salmon and fly fishing, including Ron Swanson’s Grand Cascapedia Giants and Hoagy Carmichael’s The Grand Cascapedia River: A History Vol I.
He says 'I’m fortunate to be a board member of the Miramichi Salmon Association (MSA), and a member of both The Angler’s Club of New York (ACNY) and The Boston Fly Casters. I have been proud to work with The Compleat Angler in Darien, CT, for a few years.'
