On the Water
Miles of waterfront.
"Water is the best of all things. Water is the window to our world, and to our souls." - Captain John Smith
Recognized the true potential of the Chesapeake Region lay in its teeming waters and fertile lands, and in the way both intertwined like few places on earth, with navigable tidewater kissing thousands of miles of shore.
A reason to be outdoors, a closer connection to nature, an avenue for environmentalism, built-in-community, opportunity for creative expression, seen as an extension of the farm-to-table movement – encourages people to put down their phones. The cleanest line - it's the arc of a waking dry as it skates across brackish green water. The arrow-shaped loop of a good cast driving the fly upwind into the path of a tailing striper. "The cleanest line is how we aspire to mark our passage and presence on the waters that hold our dreams." The cleanest line is also a way of doing business and, beyond that, how we see our place in the world. It means leaving as light a footprint as possible, and doing what's right simply because, well, it's right. The cleanest line then is many things. But most of all, it's how we like to experience our time on the water - waist deep. Treading lightly and looking to the horizon.

'PEAKE PERFECTION - Chesapeake Bay – Approximately 800 miles north of the Florida coast and an equal distance south of Casco Bay, Maine, lays one of the largest watershed basins in the United States: the Chesapeake Bay, child of the “mother of waters”. The bay is 200 miles long and its watershed includes six states. With over 5,600 miles of shoreline, 46 principle rivers, and countless creeks, the Chesapeake Bay is the largest inland body of water on the East Coast. Snug harbors and cozy coves provide vast opportunities for exploration and adventure. For the mariner searching for a boater’s paradise, where the seasons are long and the weather mild, the Chesapeake Bay should be at the top of the list. The water provides a center for travel, commerce and leisure, home too many species of wildlife, and a great natural resource
It all starts with the land.
