My friend Fritz…

There are two people I see regularly on my early morning weekend walks. When we cross paths, we spend a few moments chatting, then are off on our separate ways.

Philips Place is named for one of them, Tom. The other is Fritz, a former local district court judge. Fritz takes particular interest in the focal point of my walks; he’s a fly fisherman and board member of the local Trout Unlimited chapter,

What I pick up doesn't directly impact the waters that rainbows, browns and brookies inhabit in the North Carolina mountains. But as Fritz knows, keeping this junk out of any fishable waters is what counts.

so he knows the value of keeping debris out of trout habitat. He knows of Tim, my son in law who is the best fly fisherman I’ve ever seen (and I’ve seen a lot) and the former lead engineer for Scientific Angler.

Just today, Fritz invited me to visit his TU chapter and talk about what I do and how it has an indirect impact on one of the group’s primary interests: clean water.

I’ll be honored to do so. There is no promotion of these pages beyond this site. We’ll see how others respond to my passion.

About Dave Bradley (260 Articles)
I'm the one behind two totally unrelated blogs; one on 15 years of writing a weekly letter to my kids (plus other recipients), the other on my localized environmental responsibility. I'm a writer by trade and both endeavors are accepted practice for me. As for the letters, my adult children Ellen and Reid may have seen letters as corny at one point, but it's accepted practice for them, too, to find something in their mailbox other than bills and junk mail. Email and texting don't do a lot for me for a lot of different reasons. Snail mail has its place in the communicative world so as long as they keep selling stamps, I'm buying. As for 'Pick Up Your Path' and the environment, I advocate what citizens can do themselves to take a direct hand in their neighborhood environment. But Pick Up Your Path is also a general environmental blog. It may be largely about litter and trash, but both of those are just one element of the total environmental picture.
