Fly Fishing 101: July 18th
There is no substitute for focused initial instruction when making a start in fly-fishing. Trying to go it alone, coupled with the perceived cost of equipment and complexity of the sport, often keeps potential fly-fishers from entering and enjoying this magnificent pastime. Whether you are completely new to fly fishing or have just been out of the game for a while this class is packed with useful information to help you make the most of your time on the water and quicken the learning curve. The 101 class covers all the basics of equipment, terminology, knot tying, rigging and fly selection.
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.
Class size is limited to ensure plenty of time for individual questions and one on one casting instruction. The cost is $100 and includes a $50 Gift Certificate to the shop. Pre-payment is required to reserve your spot. No equipment needed. Class begins at the shop at 9:00am and finishes at 5:00pm.
Introduction to Tenkara July 19th
Whether you are new to the sport of fly fishing or just looking to try something different, this traditional Japanese method of fly fishing has something to offer everyone. Tenkara takes a minimalist approach to the art of fly fishing so getting accustomed to the equipment and technique is very intuitive. You will be amazed at how easy it is to present a fly and catch fish with Tenkara.
We will spend about an hour at the shop going over equipment and rigging and then head to the river for two hours of on water instruction. Class time begins at 10:00am at the shop and will finish at 1:00pm. Class size is limited and spots are available on a first paid basis. Cost is $40 and can be applied towards the purchase of a Tenkara rod within 10 days from taking the class.
Entomology 201: July 25th 4:00 - 7:00pm
If you can identify a midge, mayfly or caddis streamside or have already taken The Drift’s beginner entomology class, but you would love to know MORE about bugs this class for you. The curriculum goes beyond identification, and details information on hatch cycles, insect mobility, fish insect recognition tools, and teaches the vital keys to applying this knowledge to your fishing.
The class is taught at The Drift Fly Shop and will use photos, diagrams, video, preserved, and live specimens to aid your learning.
This is a three hour class. The cost is $30.00 and class size is limited.
