The Montana Supreme Court handed a victory to those seeking to
protect Montana’s waterways and dealt a setback to the proposed Rock Creek Mine near Noxon.

“Absolutely. This is a victory,” said Clark Fork Coalition director Karen Knudsen, about the ruling that voided the Revett Minerals‘ permit to discharge up to 3.3 million gallons of polluted water per day into the Clark Fork River.

Just chatted with TR at AEG and it looks like the wallet is opening this year.  They'd like to announce that $5k is up for reward during the Fly Fishing Film Tour

The film tour has also expanded for 2009 and is now available for licensing.  If you're in a market that isn't on the circuit why not host it and make a little DIY coin? email AEG Media if interested.
