Bradley is an avid fly angler, a member of Cache Anglers, and has been actively involved in chapter projects. He also happens to have conducted a great deal of research on nonnative aquatic species introductions in Utah, and in February he will share what he’s learned at the Cache Anglers chapter meeting.

Ever wonder how and when brown trout, rainbow trout, and brook trout ended up in our waterways? Are you aware that other species, such as lobster and salmon, made brief appearances in Utah? Do you know how LDS prophet Wilford Woodruff fits into all of this? Hear these and other surprising details in what promises to be a highly entertaining and enlightening presentation. The meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. with chapter business followed by Bradley’s presentation.
