Walks and Talks: lectures and fly fishing lessons in Missoula
March 07, 2012
The Clark Fork Coalition is hosting its third installment of a monthly Walks & Talks series, Fly-Fishing Made Easy, held at 140 S. 4th St. W. in Missoula from 12pm to 1pm on Wednesday March 14. The event is sponsored by Grizzly Hackle Fly Shop, and will feature an update on the state of the fishery in nearby rivers, as well as a fly-fishing “how to” for anglers ready to get out on the water this spring.
Participants will hear the most up-to-date report on how fish populations are faring on the Clark Fork, Bitterroot, and Blackfoot Rivers. Plus, fly-fishing experts from Grizzly Hackle will teach basic knots, the types of flies to use in different conditions, and tips for the best fishing holes to hit this spring.
This event is free and open to the public. Grizzly Hackle will provide free baked goods and refreshments, but participants are encouraged to bring a brown-bag lunch. The event will begin at the Clark Fork Coalition offices on 4th Street, and then move to the Kim Williams Trail along the Clark Fork River, weather permitting.
The Clark Fork Coalition’s monthly Walks and Talks series is designed to keep citizens in the Clark Fork watershed up to speed on hot topics that affect our water and communities. Walks and Talks events take place on the second Wednesday of every month in 2012, and range from outdoor adventures to featured speakers on a variety of topics.
Up next: “How to Be Flood Ready” on April 11th. This event will feature a walk through Tower Street trails, and an update and preparedness training from NOAA professionals.
