Basic Fly-Fishing Workshop

January 21 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Ready to try your hand at fly-fishing? Or perhaps need a refresher? This Workshop is perfect for those with zero experience, looking to refine their skills and everyone in between by teaching tactile and visual cues that are easy to understand. Our intensely trained and passionate volunteer instructors will guide you through the roll cast and basic cast using Joan Wulff’s method of instruction. This instruction provides the beginning fly-angler with the foundations for more advanced casting. They’ll also go over fly-fishing equipment, setting up a fly-fishing leader, and how to land a fish on a fly-rod during the on-the-water portion of instruction. It is highly recommend to attend the virtual ‘Fly-Fishing Basics: Understanding & Selecting Fly-Fishing Equipment’ program before this workshop.

Participants must be at least 13 years old to register. 15 or younger require onsite guardian. All fly rods and necessary equipment will be provided. -Wear closed-toe shoes, a hat with a visor and some sort of eyewear (polarized sunglasses recommended).
