Learn about mayflys and get flyfishing tips
Downeast Trout Unlimited will sponsor an online presentation by Megan Hess, entitled “Blue-wing Olive Mayfly Life Cycle & Winter Fishing Techniques,” at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday via Zoom.
This talk will discuss the life cycle of the blue-wing olive, a prevalent mayfly, during the winter hatch and also will include winter tips and tricks for flyfishing.
With degrees in aquatic biology and environmental sciences, Hess researched heavy metal contamination in water bodies in the national parks. She is the environmental services coordinator for Orono and a registered Maine guide, who loves to fish for native brook trout in northern Maine and for smallmouth bass on the Penobscot River. Hess is the founder of BeadHead Fishing Company, a fly tying service in Hudson, and is on the pro staff team for Old Town Canoe.
The talk is free but registration is required at us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZYqduCqrzsuH9QG2g9K8KVv3akboXtRrcnq.
