Fly fishing has been one of my favorite outdoor activities since I was 10 years old. In this class, I will take people out on the river and we will set up our rods, tie on a fly, and learn to cast. We will also learn how to choose the right rod and line for you, talk about which flies to use, fishing knots, river safety, what gear to set yourself up with, and talk a lot about fish! Let’s see what we can catch!!! No experience necessary, and all materials provided (you are welcome to bring your own equipment)
