This month’s featured speaker will be..
Todd Spire, fly fishing guide and founder of Esopus Creel, will give his presentation on The Mighty Esopus
The Mighty Esopus examines the unique history, geology, and fishing heritage of Esopus Creek in the Eastern Catskill Mountains. The creek’s ideal geological environment for trout, formed millions of years ago and perfected by the last ice age, has made it a popular destination for anglers. The introduction of American dry fly fishing in the early 1900s further established the creek as a top-rated fishery in the Northeast. In addition to exploring the creek’s fishing history, The Mighty Esopus also discusses the construction of the nation’s largest all-natural reservoir system, which supplies New York City with 40% of its water, and the efforts of local anglers to conserve not only their home waters, but nearly every river of the Catskills. Presented by Esopus Creel founder Todd Spire, the stories of the Esopus are woven together to create a snapshot of how geology, history, conservation, and a profound love of rivers have helped maintain a vibrant fishery in the face of countless obstacles.
