Nymphs, Duns, and Spinners: the Making of a Hatch Guide

PRESENTED ON FEB 11, 2016
IN ST JOSEPH @ VOL 4

Ann Miller has a love for bugs & fishing, who knew! And she tells us all about it in 6.6 minutes.

Ann’s most recent project stemmed from her love of fly fishing and teaching. While teaching beginning and intermediate fly fishing schools, she became frustrated with the lack of comprehensive Midwest information on insect hatches, taxonomy, behavior, and flies to match them. An aquatic biologist, she decided to tackle the world of bugs head on, and the result is the Hatch Guide for Upper Midwest Streams. The field guide was published in January, 2012 (Frank Amato Publications).

The New Days - Seeing the Culture of Nan-Fang-Ao Fishing Villages

BY 李元YUAN LEE
IN TAIPEI

A hotel is not the destination of travel, but the starting point of cultural discovery. Mr. Lee renovated a 40-year-old hotel in Nan-Fang-Ao and renamed it 'The New Days'. He hopes that by creating comfortable spaces, he may prolong people's stay at the fishing village, helping them see beyond the fish market and seafood restaurants common to all fishing villages, discovering the deeply-rooted industry culture and the hardship of a fisherman's lifestyle.

Artistic Encounters with Plastiglomerate, Derelict Fishing Gear, and other Pacific Plastic Flotsam

BY JAIMEY HAMILTON FARIS
@ VOL 27 ON JUN 10, 2016

“He mimes geological compression, squeezing all of the detritus together to make a post-consumerist stone.”

In Artistic Encounters with Plastiglomerate, Derelict Fishing Gear, and other Pacific Plastic Flotsam from PechaKucha Night Honolulu Vol. 27, Jan Dickey, UHM MFA candidate, and Jaimey Hamilton Faris, UHM Associate Professor of Contemporary Art and Critical Theory, will talk about how art engages with the environmental impact of plastic trash in the Pacific Ocean. They will introduce the work of three artists: Kelly Jazvac’s “readymade” plastiglomerate (a newly designated geologic formation of sand, coral, and plastic); Maika’i Tubbs’ attempts to replicate platiglomerate’s geology; and Mary Babcock’s weavings of plastic fishing line found on the shores of the Hawaiian Islands.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" of Thursday, July 21st, 2016.

Adversity, Adventure and the Outdoors

BY ROB CONTE
@ VOL 6 ON NOV 01, 2018

"Adding insult to injury" is thankfully a phrase Rob Conte is unfamiliar with. Oh, he's had injuries: between his work life as a wildland firefighter and river guide, and his pastimes of mountian biking and snowboarding, injuries pretty much come with the territory. But Rob usually does not have to deal with the "insults", as his close network of family and friends supported him every step of the way as they "played through the pain" together.

Drawn From the Present

BY COLLIN HAMMAN
@ VOL 7 ON APR 05, 2019

Collin Hamman never takes his time for granted and makes a point of using each moment as a possibility for inspration. His graphic design and illustrations are heavily influenced by his time spent in the wilderness of Montana where he sees constant opportunity for the next t-shirt, logo, or printed design work that may come his way. Being self-employed as an artist is never easy, but when you mix pleasure with work the way Collin does, you will always come away fulfilled.
