Updated 8:10 am, Monday, February 6, 2012
Join the Mianus Chapter of Trout Unlimited for a winter presentation by two Wilton residents Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 7:30 p.m. at Waveny Park, 677 South Ave. in New Canaan. Chapter president Jeff Yates and vice president Dean Keister will present on local fly fishing skills to maximize your time on the water.
To effectively fish many of our local streams, anglers must understand trout behavior, insect activity and have a basic understanding of how river currents work. Yates and Keister will walk guests through the tips and tactics which will help them increase their catch rate and find fish in any condition.
Topics covered will include:
Reading the water;
Insects and hatches;
Fishing in high water;
Fishing up, down and across the stream.
