FlatsWorthy receives donations

Rockport’s FlatsWorthy, a grassroots initiative, recently received a $15,000 grant from the Ruth Parr Sparks Foundation and a $10,000 gift from the Ross Craft family. The Sparks grant will help fund a video project with the University of Texas Marine Science Institute to investigate changing sea grass densities on a local barrier island and its impact on future fishing.  The Craft donation will be used for local FlatsWorthy projects. Pictured with the donations are, from left, Dave Hayward (Swan Point Landing/Orvis fly shop), Capt. Travis Glidden, Corbin Craft, Capt. Chuck Naiser, and Capt. Billy Trimble.
