Dave Sherwood's "Wild File" Photo Blog

We’ve referenced many articles by writer and photographer Dave Sherwood in the past, including a recent piece he wrote for The New York Times on peacock bass fishing in the Panama Canal. Sherwood is a former Maine guide who recently relocated to Costa Rica with his wife. He writes on environmental topics for the Tico Times in San Jose, and keeps a photoblog that includes some brilliant photography of the Costa Rican countryside, including shots of rainbow trout that reproduce naturally in the mountain streams there. Interestingly, as Sherwood points out, “These rainbow trout were transferred to Costa Rica and Panama from the McLoud River in California back in the 1940s – intended to provide recreation opportunities for U.S. army officers stationed in the Panama Canal Zone.”
