2013 Eddie George Award
Excerpt from LRCTU May 2014 Newsletter
by Dave Ezell
"At Troutfest April 25, 2014, Charlie Chmielewski, representing the Chapter Board, awarded the 2013 Eddie George Award to this year’s winner - James Locke. The Eddy George award is given for direct volunteer work with the Park Service Fisheries Department. James is well deserving of the award. He seems to be at most of the stream volunteer activities, from water sampling to brook trout monitoring. James has endless energy. Despite work and raising a family, he somehow finds the effort to give back with his time and talents. In keeping with the tradition of the Eddie George Award, James will receive a custom made Sage fly rod built by and very generously donated again this year by Ken Henderson.
Congratulations James!! "
Breck and I had the pleasure of giving James his first pats on the back. A very derserved recognition, friend.
