Fishing was an integral part of my childhood. I’d cast along the shore while floating downriver in my uncle’s fishing boat. I lost tackle during these excursions but he never gave it much consideration. I’d tie another line and keep casting. Eventually I learned the water keeps everything. Those lost bobbers are out there somewhere.
I used Maine’s own Cassie – The Casco Bay Sea Serpent to illustrate the perils of plastic pollution. Proceeds from the sale of this work will be donated to the Surfrider Foundation. Surfrider is dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network.
