First, the Deerfield River Trout Unlimited chapter is hosting a meeting about the Farmington’s Brown Trout Survivor Strain Program. CT DEEP Biologist Neal Hagstrom will be speaking. The Survivor Strain program really improved conditions at the Farmington, and some estimate that half of the browns there now are wild.
The talk is open to the public and will be on September 27, 6:30 pm, at the Eagles Club (52 State Street, Shelburne Falls, MA). Doors open at 6 pm, if you want to meet some amazing anglers who know well the Deerfield.
Second, our very own Joe Drake will be the M.C. for a Backcountry Hunters & Anglers (BHA) live-storytelling event featuring some cool speakers. It will be a night of “Campfire Stories,” full of revelry and community.
Tickets ($40 each) include food, beverages, and an annual BHA membership for you or a friend. The event will be at the new Filson store in Boston’s Seaport District, September 20, 6 pm to 9 pm. For more information, click here.
