thanks for story on eel man. we should all be so wise and have such a good outlook on “what is enough…” i too live alone on a river in the east, down a dirt road. sometimes its a real challenge, when mother nature takes what she wants, then so much rehab… i now have a new appreciation for the work i have to do to sustain my piece of the river… keep up the good work. sheri

Very interesting story, but an important factual error at the beginning: the Delaware River is NOT in western NY.
