Local fishing enthusiast Dick Peach will present “Hooked on Fishing,” a beginner’s guide to fishing the ’burbs, from noon until 1:30 p.m. on May 7. The program and demonstrations will equip novices of all ages with basic knowledge about what to purchase, how to set up equipment and tie a proper knot, as well as tips to better bait, hook and catch species on local waters in the Chicago suburban area. “Hooked on Fishing” will be held at the Evanston Ecology Center, 2024 McCormick Blvd.

No fee will be charged, but donations to the Evanston Environmental Association (EEA) will be accepted. More information is available at the Evanston Ecology Center at 847-448-8256.
