To Fish 52 Rivers [7.12.2013]

Shelley Walchak came late to fly-fishing, but now she’s waist deep in a plan to fish in 52 rivers in 52 weeks. Also in this show: writer Peter Markus, at work on a book called “Fish and the Not Fish,” creates characters that live in water, mud and on the end of a fishing line; Mark Moffett, a biologist and photographer, traveled the world looking  animals and insects that pollinate plants; and this happened: 566 mariachis got together to play in the same place.
