    Check out and share this inspirational and motivational film produced by a high school student about a VA Brook Trout habitat restoration project, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-Fdsrkz-N0&feature=youtu.be. I have also posted the link on the AREA facebook page. The student who produced the film is now a student at Columbia College.

    I strongly encourage everyone to go lead-free. We’ve made that commitment in Minnesota’s aquatic education program. Our biggest concern are loons and fish-eating raptors, but many other species can be affected by lead in the environment. Check out these pages for more information:

    The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has a long list of vendors that provide lead-free tackle: https://www.pca.state.mn.us/living-green/manufacturers-and-retailers-nonlead-tackle

    In particular, Water Gremlin, www.watergremlin.com/gremlin-green, ("Gremlin Green" line features several styles of weights made from bismuth, and split-shot made from tin) and Northland Fishing Tackle, www.northlandtackle.com, (The "Nature Jig" is 100% lead free, cast from a nontoxic bismuth/tin alloy) have been our source for most of our split shot and jigs. Here is a contact for Northland:
