Neurobiologists Say Fly-Fishing is Good for You

It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to know that fly-fishing is good for you. Or it does it?

The Harvard Medical School’s Department of Neurobiology recently published an article that compared fly-fishing to yoga in its ability to relax the brain and combat the ill effects of every day stress.

 We will have a guest tier and lecturer- Captain Ray Stachelek. 
 He will deliver a 30 minute presentation that brings together how to fish the flies he will be tying and the coastal habitat to fish during the Rhode Island Fall.
 His talk, “The Fall Exodus” will highlight Napatree Point, which is one of the least known gems in the crown jewel of the Rhode Island coastline. This barrier beach along our south western shore offers some of the finest opportunities to intercept the fall migration. Stripers and bluefish stage here during the fall run.  This seminar chronicles one special October day. Emphasis will be on bait, flies, and techniques. 
 
Captain Ray Stachelek is a recognized, authoritative saltwater guide in Southern New England. He is known for his resourcefulness and canny ways of putting clients on trophy fish with a fly. No matter what the species, Ray has the insight to target them. Capt. Ray is also a professional fly tier, another asset that works well on the water. His patterns are featured in fly shops and catalogs around the nation. His innovative flies are time tested, proven; often duplicated.
