Dr. Hal Lyon opens New Hampshire Boat Museum's Lecture Series


WOLFEBORO — The first in the New Hampshire Boat Museum's summer lecture series will be held Tuesday, June 10 at 7 p.m. The program entitled "Angling in the Smile of the Great Spirit" will be presented by author, speaker, professor, and angler, Dr. Hal Lyon.

This program is sponsored by a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council. Following the lecture there will be light refreshments including iced coffee from Seven Suns Coffee and Tea in Wolfeboro. There is no charge to attend the lecture.

Anyone who has ever posted a "Gone Fishin" sign on the door during business hours will appreciate Dr. Lyon's talk on the habits, rituals, and lore of some of the more colorful members of the not-so-exclusive "Liars' Club". During Dr. Lyon's talk, he will share tales, secrets, folklore, and history of fishing in New Hampshire's big lakes - especially Lake Winnipesaukee which translates into "Smile of the Great Spirit."
Hal's definitive book on glacial lake fishing, Angling in the Smile of the Great Spirit, was named "Best Book of the Year" by the New England Outdoor Writers Association and has been a best seller in New England for the past three years. He has produced two DVDs in the "Love Affair with Angling" series which includes humorous, colorful interviews with the 15 Master Anglers in his book who cumulatively have over 600 years fishing on Lake Winnipesaukee.

The New Hampshire Humanities Council that sponsored this program nurtures the joy of learning and inspires community engagement by bringing life-enhancing ideas from the humanities to the people of New Hampshire. To learn more about the Council and its work visit www.nhhc.org.
