Supermoon Flyfishing on Utah’s Weber River

May 5th was a special night in Utah, and across the globe, with a “Supermoon”  (the scientific term is a Perigee Moon) lighting up the night sky with a 30% increase in brightness over an average moon, topping out at brightest moon in the past 18 years.  A Perigee, or Supermoon occurs when a full or new moon’s timing lines up with a point when the moon is closest to earth on its imperfect, elliptical path around our planet. The moon has a far greater influence on human, plant, and animal life than most would think, and as our society become more and more keyboard and pixel dependent, our disconnection to the elements of nature grows more and more.  The power of the moon is obvious, the effect of the moons gravity on earth is 2 and ½ times as powerful as that of the sun.  Tides over 53 feet occur in Nova Scotia, some scientists claim that the crust of the earth rises 4 – 12 inches as the moon rises above the horizon, and settles when the moon sets, and a similar effect is said to be had upon our atmosphere.  If the moon has such an effect on our planet, certainly it must have influence over every living thing on earth…… In the tropical rain forests of SE Asia and South America, hardwood trees are only harvested on waning moons. Why?  During a waxing or full moon the sap within the trees rises, and harvesting during this time would cause widespread sap bleeding, thus attracting millions of Deathwatch Beetles, which devastate crops and could cause millions...
