Episode Guide »
Host Lawrence Pyne joined John Marshall of "River Excitement" in Hartland Four-Corners for a day of fishing from his "McKenzie" on the Connecticut River. Then, we tag along with two Vermont Wildlife Fisheries Biologists to see how a stream is surveyed. Also, we spent some time with a class at the Waterfront Diving Center in Burlington to get a first-hand look at what it takes to scuba dive. Lastly, host Marianne Eaton spent a day on Lake Champlain aboard a Friendship Sloop from the Whistling Man Schooner Company in Burlington and learned some of the basics of sailing.
