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. All members of the family - spouse and children 15 years and older are welcome.

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.
