Details

  • Big Jon's "Captain's Pak" Manual Siderigger is the toughest, best-built manual downrigger on the market. Many old fishermen refer to it as "The Workhorse of Manual Downriggers!" Indeed, our service department still takes in many 40 year old Captain's Pak manuals for basic maintenance!
  • The Captain's Pak manual siderigger features an easy to use "One-Hand-Crank" clutch system. Just ease the crank handle back to let the cannonball decend or crank forward to retrieve it.
  • Loaded with handy features, the Captain's Pak has as standard equipment: a swivel mounting base, a single Multi-Set rod holder, a Big Jon line release and a locking, tip-up sectional boom.
  • The high-strength swivel mounting base is machined from billet aluminum. It rotates 360 degrees and locks in eight positions so you can fish from almost any angle.
  • The Multi-Set rod holder is so easy to use, that you can adjust it to any of it's nine positions with just one hand!
  • The Band Buster line release is one of the simplest line releases you can find. Also, it is very popular because it signals when a fish strikes, by transmitting the action to the rod tip, making the rod tip bounce.
  • The locking, tip-up boom makes setting lines safe and easy. It is a three piece sectional boom that can be used as a 2, 3 or 4 foot boom to best meet your needs.
  • Also included with your Captain's Pak: a 4 inch x 4 inch mounting plate, a footage counter, and 200 feet of stainless steel cable.
  • This Big Jon downrigger has been given a bright anodized finish that will resist corrosion and add a beauty to your boat that plastic downriggers can not offer. When you choose Big Jon products, your boat will shine.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality's Water Quality Division

With an average rainfall of only 12.5 inches per year and a population that's growing faster than the country's , Arizona is a state that faces unique challenges, especially when it comes to clean, safe water. The Water Quality Division of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) protects and enhances public health and the environment by monitoring and regulating drinking water. And although they make use of the latest scientific methods and new technology, given the current state of Arizona's water system, they also rely upon low-tech equipment and cooperation from members of the community to monitor water quality in the state. Team members in the Groundwater Protection Program work to sample, test and characterize groundwater quality in all 51 of Arizona’s basins.

Latest Satellite and Eddy Covariance Data Shows Vulnerability of Trees to Drought

William Anderegg, assistant professor of biology at the University of Utah, has spent years studying drought-stricken trees all over the world. As climate change is expected to cause increased drought severity in the future, the work of Anderegg and his colleagues becomes increasingly important. In a previous interview for the Environmental Monitor , Anderegg found that a tree’s hydraulic safety margin was the best indicator of whether a tree would survive drought. The hydraulic safety margin is an expression of how the tree reacts under drought conditions, where there is very little water being pulled up the tree’s transport system and air is being pulled up instead. “It’s like a heart attack for the tree,” he noted.

A Balancing Act In The Grand Canyon: The High Flow Experiments

You've probably heard of the Four Corners region of the United States; that's where the corners of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet at one point. These same four states are also part of the Colorado River Storage Project (CRSP), which began to change the face of the American West in 1956, enabling the population explosions in places like Phoenix and Los Angeles to continue thanks to usable water. Glen Canyon Dam is 220 meters high and 480 meters wide, and this massive structure has changed this section of the Colorado River all the way to Lake Mead dramatically. It has also increased low-flow magnitudes, decreased peak flow magnitudes and volumes and caused fluctuations in daily discharge levels that the area relies upon for generation of hydroelectric power.
