Fly Fishing – A Tale of Two Rivers

Lasko,Ron-125A Talk at the Cotuit Library by Ron Lasko
Tuesday, October 29 at 7:00pm

Ron Lasko has spent his lifetime fly fishing for trout from New England to Georgia. Over the last 25 years, his fishing and study have focused on Cape Cod’s Quashnet and Mashpee rivers, seeking the unique species of Sea Run Brook Trout that once inhabited many waterways and is now limited largely to these two rivers.  The result is his new book, “A Tale of Two Rivers”, in which he details the rare circumstances that allow this vastly diminished species to survive on Cape Cod’s peninsula.

Join us as Ron explores the Quashnet and Mashpee in all four seasons and throughout history, from the early Wampanoag net fishers through President Grover Cleveland, who fished these waters with his friends, and to the present day. Of course, also discover the personal gear, rod, reel, line, approach, tactics, hatches, traditional patterns, and special favorite patterns that make fly fishing a joy, from one who knows.
