New Library Foyer Exhibit
To an angler, each bend in the river reveals new riffles and pools, glimmering with hope. The pebbles and rocks underfoot create pockets of opportunity. An emergence of insects becomes a call to rise as barely perceptible rings hint of hungry trout.
The perfect cast is an act of grace.Pam Parker, Community Library Circulation Manager
When we step into the river to fly-fish, we become one with this natural flow, reading water like an ever-changing book. With senses attuned, we cast the fly line back and forth above the water before settling it in just the spot we aimed for. A perfect cast is an act of grace.
Through word, object, and image, the Library Foyer exhibit celebrates four Wood River Valley women who have earned the badge of Reel Legends on our local waters.
Amanda Bauman: Elementary school teacher at The Community School who spends her summers working as a fly-fishing guide
Morgan Buckert: Has worked for almost two decades in recreation and conservation in the Wood River Valley
Susanne Connor: Once flew gliders over the Valley and now guides fly-fishing year around and co-operates a local outfitter
Juliette Guiterrez: Lives steps from the river in Ketchum and might be found styling hair in the morning and casting a fly on the Big Wood that same evening
The Foyer exhibit ends in April 2022.
