Frankfort’s Fishing Reels: Jewels of the Bluegrass

Frankfort has a very unique place in history as being the town where the bait casting fishing reel was perfected and first produced. Every place has its historic event or figure, but only we have this distinction. It was a Frankfort industry for over 100 years. Local craftsmen handmade these gems to fish the renowned streams of central Kentucky. Their reputation for quality and beauty was recognized around the world.

6:30 – 7:30 pm – Natural History of Franklin County: Dragonflies & Damselflies, at the Paul Sawyier Public Library, 319 Wapping Street

Dragonflies and damselflies have been around since dinosaurs roamed the earth. The long history of these beneficial insects has given them ample time to perfect the art of flying, and they have no equal among aerial insect predators. The immature stages or larvae live in ponds, lakes, and streams, and like the adults, they are voracious predators in the aquatic realm.

Ellis Laudermilk, invertebrate biologist for the Kentucky Heritage Program, will discuss Kentucky’s dragonflies and damselflies, including topics of species diversity, life history, ecology, and the behavior of these fascinating and colorful insects.

This free event will take place in the Library Community Room. Please register online or at the Library. For more information, contact Diane Dehoney at 352-2665×108 or diane@pspl.org.

“The Natural History of Franklin County” series is sponsored by the Woods and Waters Land Trust and PSPL.
