“Adventure Trip to Yellowstone and Big Sky Country – The Magic of the West,” An Illustrated Lecture Presented By Rick Little of Shadcreek Flies
September 21, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Travel with Rick as he explores one amazing corner of the West! Enjoy the beauty of Yellowstone National Park, its wildlife, the geothermal features, and the spectacular scenery of this national treasure. Through the eyes of an outdoorsman, experience some of the beautiful rivers, mountains, and historical sites in surrounding areas of Montana and Wyoming. This is a great program for both anglers and non-anglers-anyone interested in the natural beauty of this part of the country. You will see why they call it “Big Sky Country!”
Rick Little is a self-taught fly fisherman who has had the opportunity to learn from some very knowledgeable outdoorsmen and fishermen. Much of what he has learned came from observing nature and skillful fishermen on the water, and conversations about fish, flies, fishing, and life that took place around Coleman lanterns and campfires on many rivers.
Rick has been active in conservation organizations for years, including serving as president of Trout Unlimited Chapters in Manchester, NH and Bangor, ME. He grew up in Marblehead, MA and spent a great deal of time on the ocean drop line fishing for flounder and cod, setting lobster traps, and exploring the coastal beaches. When he went to college at the University of Maine, he became hooked on freshwater fishing and fly fishing. It was during the winter of 1968 that he took a fly tying class and embarked on a lifelong hobby that has sparked his imagination and desire to learn more about flies, and trout and salmon rivers. Rick now lives in southern New Hampshire with his wife, Ellen, and started Shadcreek Flies as a way to share his interest in fishing with a wider audience.
While the majority of Rick’s fishing has been in New England, he has also fished in Atlantic Canada, Quebec, Up-State New York and out West. His programs focus on a practical approach to fishing and an appreciation for the entire fishing experience and the beautiful environments in which trout and salmon live.
