An exciting, new, life-sized carving of Fly Rod Crosby, a 2017 inductee to the Maine Women’s Hall of Fame, has found a home in Maine’s Inland Fisheries and Wildlife building in Augusta. Thanks to the High Peaks Alliance of Franklin County and two generous donors, this six-foot, one- of-a-kind likeness by artist Brian Stockman of New Hampshire, is available for public viewing.

The event will feature a short presentation by Earle Shettleworth, Maine’s State Historian and retired director of the Maine Historic Preservation Commission, to the IF&W Advisory Council followed by an opportunity for public viewing. You can attend the Advisory Council Meeting and short Presentation live or virtually by contacting Becky Orff at [email protected] The lobby viewing will feature the carving with a song, The Ballad of Fly Rod Crosby, composed by Bud Godsoe and Stan Keach and sung by Julie Davenport of Maine’s Sandy River Ramblers. Additionally, it is rumored that there will be a surprise appearance of a Fly Rod Crosby look-alike. Join us in Augusta on February 14, 2023 at 10:15. Parking is available at the Kennebec River Rail Trail parking lot, 369 Water Street (next to IF&W building).
