STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

Learn about the aquatic insects that live in the big Wood River and other local waters when the Hailey Library hosts fly fisher Morgan Buckert.

Buckert will discuss aquatic entomology at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 27, at Hailey Town Center West. She will also show examples of tied flies designed to match the hatch and discuss timelines for hatches.

“Aquatic insects are a key part of the food web of healthy rivers and creeks,” said Kristin Fletcher, the library’s programs and engagement manager. “Naturalists of all persuasions find them fascinating in their own right, but knowing their complex life cycles is essential to successfully fish challenging waters like Silver Creek and the Big Wood River.”

Buckert moved to Sun Valley in 2005 to intern at Silver Creek Preserve. Like so many, she never left.

She has worked as a fly-fishing guide for a decade and fly-fishes throughout Idaho, Alaska, and along the Texas coast.  She has volunteered for 12 years for Casting for Recovery, a program for those who have recovered from or are being treated for breast cancer.

She serves as a board member for Idaho Rivers United. And the former Texas native has been known to create some awesome custom cowboy boots, in addition to other products made from leather.
