This is the cover of the Michigan's Streamside Journal with Tom Richards.

(Excerpt from GLFDA Newsletter Summer 2006)This is a well written (4) page article titled "Keeper of the Spearing Tradition" and has been written about a longtime GLFDA member Tom Richards of Cadillac, Michigan. Tome is a revered Cadillac, Michigan area ice spear fisherman, fish decoy and ice spear maker extraofdinar. Tom's quality custom made Cadillac style spears utilize recycled materials from old pitch forks and recycled wheel weights for lead ballast. His hand built creations are heirloom quality, nicely ban lanced and are deadly on fish and they are very much in demand by both collectors and ice spear fishermen.
