His conservation angle is a ruse, it's just PR. He has a business and is successful at it. He buys land and charges large amounts of money to access it.

If it were about conservation, he wouldn't ruin excellent wild trout fisheries by stocking them heavily and loading the stream with nitrates by feeding them pellets in the stream. If it were about conservation, there wouldn't even be a thought of making housing developments for "elegant country living."

The story of the land being taken away is development. He could have bought the land and donated it to a conservency, or just enacted a conservation easement, preventing development and ensuring public access and he'd have been a hero.

Judge Stuart Kurtz's decision a few years ago set this operation back a bit.

Haven't checked if they appealed it or what's going on there recently.

Anyone have an update for us???

beaver chose not to appeal Judeg Kurtz's ruling. Pretty much, as long as you keep your feet wet, you can fish the LJR past the Espy property.
beaver has continued to be busy, buying and leasing other properties in the state. He has gotten ahold of quite a few properties that were formerly open to public access but that now are closed for the use of his clients and minions. I think it is sad that such a character has intruded on fly-fishing and trout fishing in general to the detriment of many who love the sport. His stocking of pellet-fed fish in waters that are declared wild trout waters is especially damning. Below is, perhaps, the proper end for one of his fish in a wild trout stream, though I guess it's not the rainbow's fault it is a pellet-fed, man-made fish.

That is the ugliest raibow trout I've ever seen next to a fly rod. Knock it on the head and put it out of it's misery. I notice it isn't looking down, like it's on it's about to give in.
