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
