The Fish On! Series takes place annually on Tuesday evenings in February. 

Johan Frenje will share his experiences salt and freshwater fly-fishing in New England and upstate New York. Different species, such as the American shad, striped bass, blue fish, king salmon, coho salmon, steelhead, and brown trout are targeted from April to December. Different fly-fishing techniques and approaches for the different species will be presented in this seminar.

In the off-season, Johan works on tying up new and improved flies for the different species, based on the lessons learned, which will also be discussed and shown in this presentation.

Johan Frenje grew up in Sweden, spending time there fishing for perch, northern pike, trout, char, grayling, and salmon. His passion for fly fishing for big fish started in the mid-90s when he realized he could target northern pike with the fly rod. Johan moved to the Boston area in the late 90s for work. There he met a girl from the Vineyard, got married and had kids. About 20 years later, his passion is fly fishing the salt and freshwater in New England and upstate New York. Morris Island and Monomoy flats were initially the saltwater regions he fished the most. He moved to the MA north shore about 10 years ago and Cape Ann and Plum Island are now the areas he mainly fish these days, but he does fish the entire coastline from Housatonic in CT to Kennebec in ME. On freshwater side, he spends time fly fishing the Merrimack River and the Lake Ontario tributaries. For more information about Johan’s fishing, see his Instagram page: www.instagram.com/frenjefly.

Fishing videos will be shown starting at 6:00pm. Join us for discussion and raffles. Johan's presentation will start at 7:00pm.
