From Fishtrap.org: “This year, our theme is Catch and Release: what we hold on to, what we let go and the one that got away. Fishing is core to the past, present and future of this area, and we will talk explicitly about the politics and future of fishing and the West. Our keynote speaker, David James Duncan, author of The River Why, will address the metaphoric significance of catch and release in writing and in life; our workshops will help you cultivate your own practice; and our panelists will discuss what we want to hold on to and what we might let go both as artists and as residents of the West in a time of transition. On Saturday night we will celebrate 25 years of writing and the West, with a gala “Fishtrap Live” hosted by Hal Cannon and Teresa Jordan.”
