Flip flops everywhere

Recommended Posts

Something that was very surprising out in the middle of nowhere Cosmo on pristine beaches around the atoll where honestly tens of thousands of flip-flops up above the high tide line. You couldn't walk 5 ft without seeing them and plenty of plastic bottles also but the flip flops were unbelievable

It's how things are these days. No one thinks that their actions ever have consequences, and our society has done a wonderful job at numbing our population to this. It's a pretty terrible thing, and it's incredibly rare that I see people picking trash up other than myself--even fellow fisherman seem to be more concerned with their "catch." It's no wonder why it's proposed that by 2050 (don't quote me on that date, it may be incorrect, give or take a decade) there will be more weight of trash in our oceans than fish. Something to think about the next time I reach for a synthetic to tie a fly as well.

I often pick up trash when out on the river but some times I just have a bag to carry it out with all my gear

I often collect it as I progress and then collect it all on my way back and just chuck it into my stripping basket. While I know absolutely no one here, has there ever been a collective trash removal from Maineflyfish? Just curious, 'cause it could be worthy, but I also don't know all that much about nothin'.
