The Pettaquamscutt River is also has a local colloquial name of the Narrow River. It is a tidal river that runs between the borders of South Kingstown and Narragansett.
So if it has another name, why type out Pettaquamscutt? Because it is a name that belies the beauty of Fall and its accompanying native beauty. There is also a little bit about it confounding electronic spell checking. Such a wonderful and unique name should apply to such a unique place. And the ancient nature should bewilder modern technology.
It is a place where different species of fish swim at different times of the year in rhythm with the seasons. So as the seasons cycle to Autumn, it is fitting to see a rhythmic, metronomic form of fishing like fly fishing. It gives the sense that land, water, sky, light, and air are in synch. And it is a spectacle worth seeing.
