Hook, Line, And Sinker: It's Fishing Season!

Opening Day to some might signify the first pitch of the baseball season. But for many Vermonters, it means the second Saturday in April has arrived and it's time to throw on the hip waders, grab the rod and reel and head to the nearest river or stream for Trout Season.

Fish and Wildlife Commissioner Patrick Berry and Lawrence Pyne, host of Vermont Public Television's Outdoor Journal, prepare us for the fishing season ahead. They let us know about the conditions, the health of our trout population and where to find the fish this season.

Plus, if you've ever found poetry in the lines of a good novel, you'll appreciate Pulitzer Remix. Sponsored by the Found Poetry Review to celebrate National Poetry Month, it features 85 artists making poetry from all 85 Pulitzer Prize winning works of fiction. Two of the artists are from Vermont and VPR's Jane Lindholm spoke with one of them, Winooski playwright James Moore.

Also on the program, we continue our series marking the 20th anniversary of the Vermont Folklife Center's Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program. We hear from  master stonecutter George Kurjanowicz who has helped keep the art alive in the granite sheds of Barre.

One in five Vermonters is considered elderly. But what does being elderly even mean — and what do Vermonters need to know as they age? I’m looking into how aging in Vermont impacts living essentials such as jobs, health care and housing. And also how aging impacts the stuff of life: marriage, loss, dating and sex.
