Andrew Haeger ’16 organized a beginners’ fly fishing workshop on the quad Thursday afternoon after the rains finally let up. He enlisted the help of Macauley Lord ’77, a fly fishermen who lives in Brunswick, and biology lab instructor Kate Farnham. Together, they showed a few students who had little experience with the sport how to flick their wrists and cast their lines gracefully into the grass. Indre Altman ’18 admitted that the Robert Redford film A River Runs Through It was the inspiration behind her wanting to pick up the skill.
