Fly Fishing & Light Tackle from Shore, Kayak, SUP & Boat

Joe Gugino and Matt Zimmermann of Why Knot Fishing will discuss all manner of fly fishing for striped bass.

Why Knot Fishing was started by Joe Gugino and Matt Zimmermann in the spring of 2014, but actually started a few years earlier when they started fishing together all the time. Over time they made many connections locally on the North Shore of Massachusetts and all over New England. They realized that not only did they love fishing, but they loved engaging with the fishing community just as much.

When the company was first founded, there wasn’t a clear direction other than uniting the local fishing community. What started off as an informal group of anglers getting together and having fun, has now evolved into official tournaments and year-round meet-ups to engage the fishing community. They are deeply committed to Catch & Release and Take A Kid Fishing philosophies, and partner with and support as many conservation initiatives as possible.

Fish On! Andover 2017, a four week fishing series on Tuesdays in February, is sponsored by the Friends of MHL. Fishing videos are shown each week from 6-7pm. Weekly prizes are awarded. Seminars begin at 7pm.

Determined to have her grandmother returned, Pinmei embarks on a journey to find the Luminous Stone alongside her friend Yishan, a mysterious boy who seems to have his own secrets to hide.

    Contact: Reference   978-623-8430   rdesk@mhl.org
   

A screening of The House We Live In, the third episode of the 2003 PBS series, Race - The Power of an Illusion. A discussion will follow, led by Rev. Lee Bluemel of North Parish Unitarian Universalist of North Andover, and by Dr. Damany Fisher, a history teacher at Phillips Academy in Andover.

About the 2003 series Race - The Power of an Illusion from Larry Adelman, Executive Producer
Race is one topic where we all think we're experts. Yet ask 10 people to define race or name "the races," and you're likely to get 10 different answers. Few issues are characterized by more contradictory assumptions and myths, each voiced with absolute certainty. In producing this series, we felt it was important to go back to first principles and ask, What is this thing called "race?" - a question so basic it is rarely raised. What we discovered is that most of our common assumptions about race - for instance, that the world's people can be divided biologically along racial lines - are wrong. Yet the consequences of racism are very real. How do we make sense of these two seeming contradictions? Our hope is that this series can help us all navigate through our myths and misconceptions, and scrutinize some of the assumptions we take for granted. In that sense, the real subject of the film is not so much race but the viewer, or more precisely, the notions about race we all hold. We hope this series can help clear away the biological underbrush and leave starkly visible the underlying social, economic, and political conditions that disproportionately channel advantages and opportunities to white people. Perhaps then we can shift the conversation from discussing diversity and respecting cultural difference to building a more just and equitable society.

RACE -THE POWER OF AN ILLUSION was produced by California Newsreel, in association with the Independent Television Service (ITVS). Major funding was provided by the Ford Foundation and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting Diversity Fund. Additional funding was provided by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Lida and Alejandro Zaffaroni, Akonadi Foundation, the Wallace Alexander Gerbode Foundation, and Nu Lambda Trust.

This event is sponsored by Memorial Hall Library, in collaboration with a local group, Courageous Conversations, and the newly formed SURJ Merrimack Valley.

    Contact: Reference   978-623-8400   rdesk@mhl.org
   

Using Errol, New Hampshire as a base of operations, this presentation will take you to the upper Androscoggin River, the Dead Diamond watershed, and some of the numerous lakes and ponds. Famous for its place in New Hampshire’s logging history, the Androscoggin River is now a popular fly fishing destination and is one of the few rivers in New Hampshire that can be fished from a drift boat. The presentation will discuss when is the best time to fish these waters and what flies work best at different times of the season.

David Kolesar is a licensed New Hampshire fly fishing guide and a partner in New Hampshire Rivers Guide Service and the Northeast Fly Fishing School. He spends the fishing season guiding anglers throughout New Hampshire, with excursions to Massachusetts and Connecticut. Drift boat operations are conducted on the large rivers of northern New Hampshire.

David is certified by the International Federation of Fly Fishers as a fly casting instructor and also teaches fly casting and fly fishing for L.L. Bean’s Burlington, MA store. He has been a volunteer fly fishing instructor with New Hampshire Fish and Game’s Let’s Go Fishing program for over twenty-five years. David ties his own flies and is a past president of the United Fly Tyers, one of the oldest fly tying clubs in the U.S. He can also be found as a demonstration fly tyer at the International Fly Tying Symposium, The Fly Fishing Show, the International Federation of Fly Fishers festivals and other events. He is a member of the Catskill Fly Tyers Guild and has fly fished many national and international locations, including Alaska, Brazil, and the Bahamas.

    Contact: Reference     rdesk@mhl.org
   

Multi-instrumentalist, David Zoffer, will be featured as keyboardist, guitarist, vocalist, bassist, and composer on his sophisticated pop/jazz/blues/fusion tunes, using character-driven male and female vocals, jazzy harmonies, funk and rock rhythms, tight arrangements, dynamic forms and story lines. Electric Joni Mitchell, the Police, Steely Dan and Frank Zappa are all influences in this music. You can hear Zoffer's roots in classic jazz and classic rock from his hometown of Pittsburgh, along with the craftsmanship he learned studying jazz composition at Oberlin Conservatory and New England Conservatory (NEC). This has allowed Zoffer to have the range to be both a featured rock and jazz artist at NYC clubs like the Bitter End, and also to be a crossover jazz/classical guest performer/featured composer/arranger/soloist with the Handel and Haydn Society and Boston Philharmonic. He will be accompanied by female vocalist, Burcu Gulec, as well as other area musicians.

Zoffer chairs NEC's Prep and Continuing Education Jazz Department, and serves on the faculty of the Contemporary Improvisation Department. He is an Associate Professor of Contemporary Writing and Production at the Berklee College of Music, and Jazz Ensemble Director at the Walnut Hill School. He is one of the most important music educators in the Boston area, having taught and played with many of the leading lights of the 21st century music scene from Boston, such as Grace Kelly, Peter Evans, Steven Fiefke and Jake Sherman.

His music can be heard at www.davidzoffer.com.
