Char... the Convoluted Natural History...

I just read Ted Williams' latest Fly Rod and Reel column detailing the basic natural history of char in North America and throughout the world. It's an intriguing piece with the usual Williams conservation lessons, and it's likely something that will educate the general angling public--perhaps even more than it's willing to be educated. Snail-eating char in Maine? Pretty damn cool.

Let's not forget, by the way, that brook trout are char, too. God bless the salvelinus genus... to it we owe great pleasure.
