OXFORD – The Oxford Historical Society’s first meeting of the season will be held at 7 p.m. Friday March 31, at the Kay House, Pleasant Street. A slide show and talk on flyfishing by Richard Behr will follow the meeting.

Behr, a native of Maine, and his wife reside in Vassalboro. Behr became a flyfishing enthusiast in the 1990s and his love for the sport grew. He said he will flyfish in Maine for anything that swims, but when he travels in the West trout are his primary goal.

Behr has fished many of the well know flyfishing destinations like the Big Horn River and the Madison River in Montana. His slide show will take the audience on some of his favorite trips to Montana, Wyoming, Idaho and Colorado and to Alaska to pursue silver salmon on the Unalakleet River.
