BRMTU Improves Access for Disabled Anglers

 Access to the Toccoa River at Tammen Park for disabled anglers was greatly improved a few weeks ago, thanks to a team from BRMTU. Sam Miller, Roger Johnson, Jim Reich and Bob Wetzsteon put their tools and skills together, lowering the rail and creating better fishing sites for disabled anglers and removed the trees that blocked much of the casting room from the deck to the river. Great job, guys!
