Free Outdoor Adventure Talk on Saltwater Fly-Fishing: Jan. 19, 2012
Fly-fishing is not only a unique sport but a very challenging one. I began fly-fishing back in 1971. I learned how to tie my own flies, thanks to lessons I took from Bill Hunter, who owned Hunter‘s Fly Shop that used to be in New Boston, N.H. Great therapy because your mind and your hands are kept busy. My involvement with fly-tying and fly-fishing totally killed my desire to smoke and drink. I can’t count the many times I’ve enjoyed fly-fishing for saltwater species with my friend Andy Bisson. We had great times fly-fishing for striped bass, mackerel, and other species, both from shore or from my boat. He’s gone now but never forgotten.
On Thursday, January 19, 2012 at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s headquarters (11 Hazen Drive, Concord, N.H. 03301), there will be a free Adventure Talk on Saltwater Fly-Fishing given by saltwater fly-fishing master, Ed Mitchell. Admission is free and doors open at 6:00 p.m. The talk begins at 7:00 p.m.. The event is being presented by the Basil Woods Chapter of Trout Unlimited. No registration is required to attend.
In his talk, “Thirty Years On the Beach”, Ed Mitchell offers insights gained from his many years fly-fishing the Northeast saltwater. He will go over everything from the basic tips and tactics to advanced strategies for the saltwater fly-rodder. Non-fly-anglers will also benefit from Mitchell’s presentation’s focus on angling tactics, striper movement and key coastal fishing locations.
Ed Mitchell is a well-known saltwater fisherman of the Atlantic coast. He is the author of three books: Fly-Rodding the Coast, Fly-Fishing the Saltwater Shoreline and Fly Rodding Estuaries. He has also written for major fly-fishing magazines such as: American Angler, Fly Fisherman, Fly Rod and Reel, Fly-Tyer and Fly-Fishing Salt Waters, where he is a contributing editor.
