On Tuesday October 13 Cleveland Metroparks will host Greg Senyo for an evening presentation, fly tying demo, and book signing at Merwin's Wharf in Cleveland. Greg describes the talk, titled Fly Fishing the Lake Erie Tributaries for Steelhead, as follows: "It's not the size of the fly or how long your cast is. It's how you use them and our rivers to your advantage! In this presentation we will cover and discuss the fickle weather patterns and river conditions we face on a daily basis here on Lake Erie. We will explore and cover the commonly overlooked and effective stripping and swinging tactics adopted and utilized by surrounding Great Lakes guides and anglers. Gear, fly selection, and equipment will be thoroughly covered. We will conclude our evening with a short tying demo, book signing, and Q&A session".
