Tippets: Poem of the People, Kreh’s Go-To Knot, Farmed vs.Wild

  • In the poem “One Today,” written by Richard Blanco and read at the inauguration of President Barak Obama, the poet calls on natural resources that define a country and its people—including the Colorado River and its struggle to the sea.
  • Strength, size, and compatibility with all sizes of monofilament are attributes essential to a good knot, writes Lefty Kreh, pointing to his go-to, the nonslip mono loop.
  • In 2013 the line will be crossed, writes Craig Leisher of The New York Times, and the majority of fish we eat will be farm-raised, not wild-caught. “The shift from foraging to farming is almost complete,” he writes, raising questions for commercial fishing industry as well as the emerging aquaculture sector.
