ROCKPORT — George's River Trout Unlimited (GRTU) welcomes guide, instructor and writer Lou Zambello to discuss his latest book, In Pursuit of Trophy Brook Trout: The Ultimate Handbook of Tactics, Timing, and Territory, his third book in his New England fly-fishing series.

Zambello has fished for and guided anglers after wild trophy brook trout for decades and spent that time deciphering seasonal migration patterns, aquatic life cycles, and weather events impacting brookie behavior. He has tested different flies and tactics, both on the surface and down deep. His latest book explains where big brookies can be found, when they are catchable, how to fool them, and how to land them, all while recounting his trophy trout experiences.

The GRTU meeting Monday, Nov. 13 will be held upstairs in the fly shop at Maine Sport in Rockport. The meeting will start at 6 p.m. with “Trout Talk,” an informal gathering for those who wish to visit before the presentation. Pizza is available for purchase by the slice. The formal meeting and featured presentation begin at 7 p.m. GRTU conducts a raffle directly following the speaker.

Trout Unlimited is a non-profit organization with a mission dedicated to conserve, protect and restore North America's cold water fisheries and their watersheds.

TU membership is open to all. GRTU meetings are free and open to the public. Visit GRTU on Facebook, or online at
