So long.....and thanks for all the fish

In 2005 when we launched the Chum there were only a few social media types tackling the fly fishing petri dish. 

One of those few was Tom Chandler at the The Trout Underground. Over the last 10 years Tom has never shied away from telling like it is and his skill as a wordsmith is something we could only dream about. 

Except for his weekly shortcasts the Underground has been pretty quiet of late and now Tom has announced that he's turning off the lights, grabbing a slaw dog and investing his time elsewhere. 

Best to you and the family Tom, you're always welcome as a guest contributer here on the Chum.

In a bid to find out the kind of struggles fish that live near hydroelectric power plants face, scientists have designed "sensor fish" — plastic tubes filled with technology that can measure the stresses and strains put on salmon swimming through dam machinery.
