In Memory of Ed McGlinn

Anglers of the Au Sable has lost a founding member and long time fighter for our river. Our condolences to the family of Ed McGlinn. An appreciation of his life is HERE.

 

Ed McGlinn set the benchmark for quality writing during his tenure as editor of The RIVERWATCH.  I urge people to go back through the first 26 issues of our newsletter to sample Ed’s work. (There are gems after that period as well.)  Whether it was thoughts about hatches, remembering departed friends, Governor Engler’s war on the DNR, or his personal Grail, the threats of Camp Grayling expansion, McGlinn‘s work was always meticulously researched, well written, and met its mark.  

   Ed McGlinn‘s passion was nothing less than for returning the Au Sable river to the stream that he fell in love with in the 1950s.  It remains a laudable goal, and one that we should be committed to achieving.  The footprints of a giant can never be filled, but we must follow Ed’s example in our conservation activities.  – Tom Buhr  – AotA Emeritus
