The Bob Hunt Memorial Lecture Series: The first of our yearly Hunt lecture series will be on the life of Bob Hunt, a member of the Wisconsin Conservation Hall Of Fame. The program will be held at the Fin 'N Feather in Winneconne, on Tuesday, May 19th at 7:30 p.m. It is a free program.
The program will feature his life story, his work life, his sporting life, his accomplishments, and the acclaim he earned. Bob is "Mr. Trout" here in Wisconsin and around the world.
Come and learn how this quiet man brought about a revolution in trout management by applying science and communication skills. A detailed 20 minute video on Bob's research on Lawrence Creek will also be featured. This was a nine year study that lead to the Wisconsin Trout Stamp.
CWTU/FVTC's Fly Tying Class met for the first time on January 12. They will meet three more times to complete the class. CWTU members David Pable, Bob Haase, Mike San Dretto, Jim Murphy, and John Gremmer are teaching the class.
