Something fishy

The Housatonic Fly Fishermen's Association will hold its annual banquet and raffle beginning with cocktails at 5 p.m. March 21 at Il Monticello's at 577 South Broad St., Meriden.
The event will include a presentation by Bob Jacklin, of West Yellowstone, Mont.

Jacklin is president of the Rocky Mountain Council of the Federation of Fly Fishers, is "one of the first certified master casters, and one of the finest people and fishermen you could ever meet," the Web site For Jacklin's Fly Shop says. Here Bob sits at his fly tying room at home where he still ties his patterns for his shop. On October 23, 2004 Bob Jacklin was inducted into the Fly Fishing Hall of Fame, the site says.
Tickets to the banquet can be purchased by sending a check, payable to HFFA, Dan Kenny, 6 Clough Road, Waterbury, Conn., 06708. For more information call Dan at (203) 206-6848 or e-mail
