Fly Fishing 101 - June 23rd, July 21st

 

There is no substitute for focused initial instruction when making a start in fly-fishing.

This is an all day, immersion class that goes well beyond " just the basics" and includes 2 hours of casting instruction, on water fly fishing demonstration and some streamside entomology.
