Featured in

Tonight, we’ll read another excerpt from “In New England Fields and Woods”, written by Rowland Evans Robinson in 1896. Robinson was, in his time, one of Vermont’s best known writers. This collection of short essays follows New England's changing seasons and moods in all its natural beauty. This particular selection covers the month of June, along with bullfrogs and angler fishing. Angling is the type of fishing, unlike trolling or long lining for example, that one typically assumes when one thinks of the activity- that of a hook on a line with a rod.
