This has already been sent to the Mail Tribune and the Daily Tidings. Feel free to rewrite it and use it to send to anyone and everyone that might be influenced to oppose the pipeline.
The wildfires in our area have been very destructive and disruptive for all of us. Lives have been lost. Homes, businesses, infrastructure and forests have been lost or damaged. Some people may never recover their former lives. Forests will take decades to come back as they were. The fires are still burning and we are faced with the Canadian Corporation that wants to put a natural gas pipeline through Southern Oregon. This is a 36 inch high-pressure pipeline filled with invisible and odorless deadly gas. After breathing smoke all summer and watching endless destruction on television every single day, how can anyone with a lucid mind think this pipeline is a safe and plausible idea?
Here is another thought starter.
Unanswered questions---sample letter---For the newspaper, politicians etc.
Today a problem area of my mind is the proposed LNG pipeline. I try to imagine what Southern Oregon will be like if the pipeline is really built. I really don’t like that image. A large area of Southern Oregon would be permanently damaged forever. What happens down the road when the natural gas is no longer profitable? What would happen if they decide to sell the pipeline? What would it be like if they decided to run another parallel pipeline along the same easement? What would happen if they decided to convert it to crude oil. We need to ask a lot more questions and demand some truthful and realistic answers. Maybe, just maybe we could all work together to get those answers.

These flies and recipes are from Dave Roberts. Dave was also the recipient of the national Darwin Atkin Lifetime Achievement Award from Fly Fishers International, Inc. at the annual meeting in August. We should be proud to have him counted amongst our members.
Soft hackle Spey

Body hackle: Purple Spey hackle ( for the small10&12s) we will use a couple subs like hen or schlappen
Front hackle: Orange guinea fowl head black
Note: I will supply hooks.
It isn’t necessary, but I use orange thread for body construction, and smaller size thread for nice small head (or as small as you can make on a double hook)
Yates Variant dates back to around 1400's as an Atlantic Salmon fly.
