Colin Monahan has been pursing various species of fish since he was 12. Growing up in the greater Lehigh Valley area he was quickly introduced to stream trout and warm water fish in the Delaware and Lehigh rivers. He’s been fortunate enough to learn from pioneers and legends in the sport such as George Harvey and Joe Humphries as well as contemporaries like George Daniel and Joe Goodspeed. His love of angling has taken him to numerous locations around the world. As a practicing attorney, he spends his free time on the water or with his family.
Colin will be discussing various aspects of chasing muskellunge. His presentation will cover the gear, lines, and flies necessary, as well as fish habitat, conservation and angling etiquette. Apart from the crash course on Esox masquinongy, Colin will also discuss an important non profit organization who’s singular purpose is to educate anglers, preserve and establish viable populations of muskellunge, and above all, have fun while enjoying this precious resource.
