May 17, 2018 Monthly Meeting
Our guest speaker will be Preston Singletary, whose topic will be-"What's Bugging You; A Very, Very Basic Introduction to Aquatic Entomology". Preston will give a non-technical overview with a brief section on the specialized vocabulary of entomology and a selection of five aquatic insects that should be of importance to the anglers. The first part will cover the life histories of these insects, some of the more prominent aspects of their reproductive strategies, insight into some of their habits, and some helpful angling strategies.
The second part will offer a few notes on the design and selection of some imitations which Preston has found to be effective and some comments on fishing them. Preston will have a printed handout listing a few reference works for those who wish to look further into aquatic entomology, especially as applied to angling.
