Wayne Snyder is an American author, photographer, illustrator, painter, poet, and conservationist, and has written a number of books about the world of fly fishing. He has written three books entitled: The Golden Age (Rochester Media, 2010), Why I Fish (self-published) and Rivers Of No Return (Rochester Media, 2012). Last year he created a painting entiteled “Isle Royale Coasters Qwest” of a Michigan Coaster Brook Trout, and will be offering prints of this painting for $75. We are excited to say that for each print sale he will donate $20 to support the Yellow Dog Watershed Preserve and it’s stream monitoring activity on the Salmon-Trout River. Coasters prefer clean waters and a limited pH range and are very sensitive to pollution and changes in water chemistry. Wayne writes, “Other than Isle Royale, this Lake Superior river [the Salmon-Trout] is one of the last refuges of the Coaster brook trout in the U.S. but this river is now being threatened by mine development in the Yellow Dog Plains, the land that spawns the very headwaters of the Salmon-Trout River.” If you are on facebook you can check out more information about this remarkable man on his profile page and purchase a print by contacting him via facebook message.
