Erin Block, who has done a terrific job with the MidCurrent news over the past several years, will be spending more time with the animals, wild and domesticated, at her Colorado homestead and doing more for the local library.  We are very grateful for all of her efforts and for the contribution she’s made to MidCurrent.  Her news writing has elevated our service to readers and fly fishers for a long time and in numerous ways, and she’ll be missed.
