Phoenicia Library Unveils “Match the Hatch” Website

Posted on: April 2nd, 2014 by Leslie_Zucker

For the last three years, the Phoeni­cia Library has worked with Stephanie Black­man, a web­site design­er and Mark Loete, pho­tog­ra­ph­er, from Chich­ester to cre­ate a dig­i­tal ‘Match the Hatch’ web­site to replace the charred pan­els that hung in the old library. On April 12, the Library will hold a web­site launch cel­e­bra­tion from 1–3PM. The state-of-the-art web­site gives the most cur­rent infor­ma­tion about insect life on the Eso­pus Creek, as well as pho­tos of the flies that imi­tate them, recipes for how to tie them, and a gen­er­ous smat­ter­ing of his­to­ry and sci­ence about Catskill fly fish­ing. The project was co-spon­sored by the Ashokan Water­shed Stream Man­age­ment Pro­gram. For more infor­ma­tion, see the Jer­ry Bartlett Col­lec­tion at
