The Middle River Group is owned and run by me, Tom Sadler. It’s the home base for my various side-hustles like guiding, writing and speaking. This website is bare bones because the demands of keeping websites updated takes time away from things I would rather be doing like fishing, guiding, writing or playing with my grandkids.
I enjoy writing, so to keep doing that without getting bogged down in the logistics of a website, I started a Substack newsletter called Dispatches from a Trout Wrangler. If you want my political takes, I created Outdoor Politics as a separate Substack. You can sign up in the blocks below to receive them.
I guide for Mossy Creek Fly Fishing when I have the time. If you are interested in guided trips, please contact the shop. I’m biased, but I think they are the best fly shop and guide service in the mid-Atlantic region. Check them out. If you want to get fishing reports and and other good stuff, sign up for their newsletter here.
On the The Marine Fish Conservation Network’s Waterside Chats I talk with guests about current ocean policy and fisheries management topics and how policy decisions impact people’s livelihoods, communities, recreation, and coastal ways of life. You can watch the Waterside Chats by following this link. The Chats are also available as podcast on most podcast apps. You can learn about future Waterside Chats and other news by signing up for the Network’s emails.
As Mountain Journal’s Washington DC correspondent I try to lend perspective to the machinations of decisions made in DC affect the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, the West and people who live or like to visit there. I do my best to make the dealings of Washington DC less obscure, less obtuse and seem less far removed from the lives of people who share a common affinity for the wild places and wild things.
