You might have heard that fly fishing is just for trout but nothing could be further from the truth. You can catch sunfish on a farm pond with fly tackle. You can catch bass and pike. You can even use a fly rod in salt water for fish like striped bass, bonefish, and even huge gamefish like tuna and marlin. It just takes a little adjustment to your tackle.
You might have also heard that fly fishing is expensive and complicated. Let’s see just how simple it can be. In this class, you’ll learn how fly and spin fishing differ, how to make the basic overhead cast and a roll cast, and a little about the history of fly fishing. You’ll learn the two basic knots you will use every time you go fly fishing. You’ll also learn about the bare essentials you need to get started in this fun and addictive sport.
This is free mini-class held at the store. Must pre-register.
