National Sporting Library and Fly Fishing Symposium

September 2, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

On November 21, the National Sporting Library in Middleburg, Virginia will hold a one-day public symposium called “A River Never Sleeps: Conservation, History, and the Fly Fishing River.” The Library — for those who’ve never been to Middleburg — is a 16,000-volume research library dedicated to horse and field sports, and they have numerous current and historical titles on fly fishing (including a number of very rare books going back to the 17th century).
Speakers at the even will include James Prosek, Hoagy Carmichael, and John Ross. Sounds like a great way to spend the day if you live in the Washington-Baltimore-Virginia corridor. Read more about the event on the NSL Web site.
