This class will be limited to the first 16 sign-ups. To reserve your spot in the class, send in your registration fee as explained below. Non-members must become club members in order to attend (included in fees shown above). Remember, family members (spouses and children under 21) are covered under one primary membership.

REGISTRATION:  Enroll by sending a check, made payable to DVFF, to Alan's home address shown to the left. (You will only be considered "registered" if you have paid the registration fee.) Please include your name, mailing address, email address, & home phone number with your check. Non-members should also include their completed membership application downloaded from the DVFF website, found here

PURPOSE:  To satisfy the needs of those club members who have yet to be adequately exposed to the basic knowledge and skills of fly fishing. This includes all members of the family - spouse and children (15 years and older).

OBJECTIVE:  To provide the beginner with enough information including knowledge of equipment, casting, basic entomology, fly selection, knots, and reading water for their initial experience with the sport.

BENEFITS TO THE NOVICE:  The beginner should leave this seminar with a wealth of "how to" information coupled with, hopefully, accomplished basic casting techniques from which to further build his or her fly fishing skills and knowledge.

WHAT TO BRING:  Rod, reel, line and whatever leader set up you might already have attached. For those of you that do not have equipment, wait until after the class to make a purchase. We have loaner rods available, but please arrange for this gear at the time you register for the class.
