Free Talk: Fly Fishing N.H.'s Upper Connecticut River for Trophy Trout
CONCORD, N.H. - Put your snow shovel aside and start planning a spring or summer angling adventure! Registered New Hampshire fishing guide Angus Boezeman will give a free talk on "Fly Fishing New Hampshire's Upper Connecticut River for Trophy Trout" on Wednesday, March 18, 2009, at 7 p.m. at New Hampshire Fish and Game headquarters, 11 Hazen Drive in Concord. Admission is free; no pre-registration needed. The session kicks off Fish and Game's spring series of free fishing talks by expert anglers.
Angus Boezeman, widely known as the guru of the Connecticut River, has more than 30 years of experience fishing on this river. At the upcoming talk, he will share his contagious enthusiasm and knowledge about this famous and sometimes intimidating fishery.
Boezeman's presentation will focus on time-tested techniques used on the river. He will share his insights on selecting the correct fly for any river condition, as well as the importance of properly reading the water for the most likely fish haunts.
"I find it amazing that there are so many people who love to fish, but have not given this world-class fishery a try," says Boezeman. "It is important to have a game plan for fishing this river, but this program will give you the confidence to give it a try."
"This program is as close as it comes to a day on the river with Angus," says Mark Beauchesne, Fish and Game's Advertising and Promotions Coordinator, himself a veteran angler, who is coordinating the series of talks for Fish and Game.
