Don MacLean grew up on Cape Breton Island and attended St. Francis Xavier University and Memorial University. He retired in 2015 after a 32 year career as a fisheries biologist with the Inland Fisheries Division of the Nova Scotia Dept. of Fisheries and Aquaculture. He has written professionally since 1999, and his columns and articles on sport fishing, natural history and traditional crafts have appeared in a variety of newspapers and magazines. He is the author of two books, Discover Nova Scotia Sportfishing and A Little Thing I Tied Myself-Stories of Atlantic Canadian Fly Tiers. Don and his wife Judy live in Pictou, Nova Scotia. In this podcast, we discuss Don’s new book project on traditional arts and crafts, the history and regional variations of fly-tying, the resurgence and vitality of craft traditions, and Don’s quest to find a tin kettle maker.
