Did you miss Diana Six’s excellent talk on the Entomology of Fly Fishing this spring?
Well, you’re in luck! MCAT recorded the lecture and is airing it two evenings in June: Tuesday, June 4th, from 7:00-8:30 p.m., and Friday, June 7th, from 9:00-10:30 p.m.
Enjoy a fascinating lecture from Dr. Diana Six, Professor of Entomology/Pathology at the University of Montana. Her primary research focuses on the evolution and maintenance of symbioses, particularly those occurring among bark beetles, ambrosia beetles, and fungi. Diana is an avid fly fisher and fly tier, and loves hiking, backpacking, cross country skiing, and just about anything outdoors that respects nature and the land. In her lecture, The Entomology of Fly Fishing, you’ll learn about the relationships between the flies you tie onto your line and the insects in the water that they are meant to mimic. You’ll learn how read the water for aquatic insects and turn that knowledge into catching more fish. Does a fly that looks to you like a particular insect look like that insect to a fish? You’ll learn that too.
