River’s Calendar Project

At our October 15, 2015 membership meeting, Entomologist, Mike Cole, gave a very informative presentation on the bugs one might encounter while fly fishing the Deerfield River.

This was an abbreviated presentation of the work he did to compile A Field Guide To Common Aquatic Insect Hatches In Massachusetts for TU and the River’s Calendar Project.
