Our speaker for the April Meeting will be Tom Lager and the title of his presentation is "Hatch Charts - There is More Than Meets the Eye. Hatch charts, like an ice berg, only disclose the "tip of the story". They capture a moment anchored in time and place, but charts can be expanded to include precious moments before, during, and after the hatch that brings richness to fishing.
The meeting starts at 6:15pm and the program starts at 7:30pm. Guests are welcome and there is no charge. If you have an interest in trout fishing, make plans to attend and bring a friend.
