I am quite active in wikiversity. v:User:JoliePA
I am editing two books
from the US_History/Contents/Preface
"This textbook is based initially on the College Entrance Examination Board test in Advanced Placement United States History. This seems to be the best reference on which to build a textbook, since it is a standard on the subject and covers what most U.S. history students study in high school and college.
It has been reorganized and re-edited in Nov 2008 to better meet the content and organization that the college board has defined for a course in AP U.S. History. The content of the book was carefully chosen for NPOV, significance and interest. We are very interested in the success of the book and any feedback and improvments would be greatly appreciated.

from the RiverFishing/Introduction
Recreational fishing might be one of the most popular widely intensively studied learning experiences that Americans (and indeed many other nationalities) participate in. According to the American Sportfishing Association nearly 40 million angler generate 45 billion dollars in sales with perhaps an total contribution of 125 billinod dollars to the US economy.
A definite portion of this is funneled into guides, magazines, and other learning experiences for the many americans that seek improvement in the activity of catching a fish on a hook (angling.)
It is then with pleasure that I begin the process of defining one of my most intensive learning effort. I look forward to and hope for collaboration from the many Americans whom have superior knowledge in the recreational activity.
Fishing has so many different forms, waters and specialties. Many I am unfamiliar with. I do though have some knowledge and experience angling for many different kinds of fish in Eastern (US) rivers. Despite the apparent ease of not needing expanisive water craft, or the complexities of fly casting and downrigger trolling; river fishing has its own mystique and difficulty. I hope to document some of what I have learned.
If there is any urgent needs for this project, it is definitely for experience in larger waters. Having defined a river, as 'big enough to support a diverse gamefish population', my experiences definitely are with smaller waters than the major rivers of the United States.
I thank you for your curiousity and invite you to ask questions and post comments, questions and content as much as you are able.
