BREWER, Maine — Ever wonder what it would be like to go sight fishing for back-country brown trout in New Zealand? Short of winning the lottery, you’ll get a chance to experience that at the Penobscot Fly Fishers meeting at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 6, at Penobscot County Conservation Association clubhouse at 570 North Main St. in Brewer. Hamish Grieg from the University of Maine will be guest speaker. Grieg recently joined the university’s School of Biology and Ecology faculty from the University of Canterbury in New Zealand. In addition to being a fresh water ecologist, he is a fly fisherman who has extensively fished New Zealand’s beautiful back country. He will be sharing some of his fishing experiences, but also photos of New Zealand’s magnificent scenery. The meeting is open to the public. Beginning at 5 p.m. with a social hour. At 6 p.m. a family style dinner will be available $11. After a short meeting, the evening’s program will begin. Come join us for a great evening. Additional information can be found at http://penobscotflyfishers.com/.
