2/28 — Yankee Fisherman No. 1
HANradio launches its first outdoors show as John Kovach hosts Yankee Fisherman, which examines fresh and salt water fishing with all types of tackle for any species of fish.
Scott Bennett, owner of Compleat Angler in Darien, discusses his store’s fly tying demos, with comments on some of the best at creating imitations of bait while on the vise.
Ron Merly brings listeners up to date on efforts to restore sea run trout to Connecticut. Temperatures are being measured in eastern Connecticut, while scientists are looking at strains they believe could survive at sea, then migrate back into the Nutmeg State’s freshwater streams. Dam removal and the construction of fish ladders could help in the restoration efforts.
Yankee Fisherman then gives its first rundown of fishing club events in the Southwestern Connecticut area.
