Two New New Hampshire Blogs

I increasingly run into more and more younger anglers when I’m out. I think that is awesome. It bodes well for fly fishing and our political influence.

First, Max DesMarais is a recent college grad who just launched a new site called He recently posted an overview of New Hampshire’s fishing opportunities (here). It is a great read.

Second, Ashu Rao is a marine biology major at the University of New Hampshire. He recently started a blog (here) to document fishing around the Durham area as well as points north and south. He recently wrote about “blue lining” and his hunt for brookies (here).

Max and Ashu, good luck with your endeavors!
