This is an update to the DON MARUSHAK section of this blog /web page.
The Pennsylvania Fish Commission decided to change the Heritage Section from FLY FISHING ONLY to ARTIFICIAL LURES. Don recognized the affront to angling tradition. He immediately drafted a letter to the Fish Commissioner for Allentown Mayor Charles Dedona's signature.The “gist” of the letter follows:
You may be in charge of the Commonwealth’s waterways, but I’m in charge of Allentown’s Little Lehigh Parkway.
If you intend to allow spinning gear, fishermen will have to jump into the stream from bridges.
I will not allow spinning gear on the property and will post it accordingly
TRADITION PREVAILED THANKS TO MAYOR JOE AND DON.
