|The 2013 Vermont Master Angler Pin! I love this one! I put in the first Master Class Gar too! AWESOME choice!|
I also just got in my 2013 Vermont Master Angler pin in the mail! I thought I would show it off a bit. It is a great program and if you are in Vermont and fish I strongly urge you to participate. It is definitely a fun way of expanding your fishing opportunities.
With that, since I got my Master Class Burbot just two days ago let's put together my species list so far:
|The full set of Vermont Master Angler Pins|
White Sucker (also the state record)
That is 23 out of the 33 species! I am 2/3 of the way through the list... And all but one on a fly rod! I have a game plan for this year too. I hope to have a few new entries into the list by year's end. I don't want to jinx myself on what could be low hanging fruit so I won't comment on which species are on my "to do" list but expect to see some cool fish coming this year! I might be using some conventional tackle along the way too (the American Eel is not a fly friendly species, but we will see).
