Knowledge Friday returns with Steve Bechard and Tim Regan. Steve is a world-class angler; Tim is an accomplished ocean videographer. Join us for a visual foray into the beautiful art of fly fishing and the waters of the East End allowing them to reel in our attention and discuss the catches that have changed them the most, both on the line and through the lens. 

An accomplished angler, Steve has put his fly fishing skills to the test, competing in several ESPN Great Outdoor Games. He has used to his knowledge and skills to teach others. A guide and a teacher, Steve is also the President and Co-founder of Rise Fishing Co. which brings quality rods that are enjoyed by skilled and novice anglers alike.

NY waterman Tim Regan is a guide for Rise Fishing Co. and is a certified Drone Pilot and ocean videographer. Field editor for On the Water magazine, Tim presents stunning shots of life in the water. From schools of fish to the majesty of whales breaching, Tim’s work is an examination of the artistry of the natural world.

Knowledge Fridays, held the first Friday of each month, highlight outstanding East End locals with various backgrounds and careers. The program allows the audience to meet and learn about dynamic, inspiring, and fascinating East Enders. It is a monthly program open to the public and free to our members.
