This Day In History: 1957-03-24
The Mahwah Library featured an exhibit of flies and fly tying equipment mounted by Brian Appleton, a senior at Ramsey High School. When he became dissatisfied with the flies he could buy in stores, he learned how to tie his own. The various stages in the tying of a fly were demonstrated in the display and also in the pages of a Canadian publication “Forest and Outdoors in Pictures”. An article by Brian was included in the January issue of the magazine. He wrote it with the assistance of his mother, a professional photographer. Another of his articles on lies was scheduled for publication in “Boys Life”. Brian said that he expected to inaugurate the trout season early on the morning of April 13th on the Saddle River.
