Brodhead Chapter Trout Unlimited May General Meeting

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015 - 11:00pm

Join the Brodhead Chapter of Trout Unlimited and the 2006 Pennsylvania State Fly Tying Champion Scott Cesari for the "History of Fly Fishing in America As Seen Through the Eye of the Hook".  This presentation is the culmination of Scott's Pocono Patterns research project.  Through his study of the flies that were created to fish the waters of the Pocono Region in Northeastern Pennsylvania, he uncovered a wealth of fascinating angling history.  This presentation details the flies that Scott found and illustrates how the history of our sport has been shaped by these patterns.  You will learn about patterns that date as far back as the mid 1800's, about the rise and fall of the famed Henryville House and it's prestigious guests, and you will see how some of these patterns can be traced back to the very first English writings on Fly Fishing from the 1600's.  It really is a fascinating look at how our sport has evolved over the years and how a study of the flies helped to uncover this rich history.  This is a unique presentation that you don't want to miss.
