April Speaker Information Below

Speaker: Joe Ackourey,  “Fly Fishing for Trout”.

April 18, 2019, Endicott Public Library, 7:00 PM (informal tying demonstration at 6:30)

Guide Joe Ackourey, an expert in fly fishing and fly tying with over 49 years’ experience, will share with you his time tested fly fishing and fly tying techniques.   His two part presentation will include a fly tying demonstration of early season Comparadun mayflies/emergers (BWO’s Blue Quills, Quill Gordon’s, Hendrickson’s) and early nymphs (Bead Head Hare’s Ear & Bead Head Pheasant Tail’s) including hands on rigging up the fly rod with nymphs, dropper style, followed by a video of himself nymph fishing showing proper presentation of the flies.

Joe Ackourey, proprietor of Joe Ackourey’s Fly Fishing Adventures, is a licensed guide with almost five decades of experience. A life-long resident of northeastern PA, Joe guides primarily on the Lackawanna River, Bowman Creek and Susquehanna River, but also several mountain streams that are home to native brook trout. Joe began fly fishing/tying at age six, taught by his father, whom Joe describes as “a true master on the vise and on the water”. When his parents opened a fly shop in 1976, Joe discovered a passion for teaching. He developed a comprehensive fly tying course, and has since instructed countless students in tying their first wooly worm. Throughout his career, Joe has been a contributing author for Mid-Atlantic Fly Fishing Guide, a featured fly tier at Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum, and a frequent guest on Pennsylvania Outdoor Life, and similarly themed television shows. Joe does presentations for organizations such as Boy Scouts of America, local schools and colleges, and several chapters of Trout Unlimited. Joe has been on the board of the Stan Cooper Sr. chapter of Trout Unlimited since 1996, and chairs their Youth Fly Fishing Camp and stream improvement projects, and has been recognized for his commitment to environmental stewardship. Joe finds motivation in helping others, both beginner and seasoned, “open new doors” toward meeting their fly fishing goals. He is happiest at the vise or on the stream, sharing his knowledge and appreciation for the art of fly fishing.
