Fly Casting Workshop
Landing a fly gracefully on a quiet inland lake or gently on a rushing river is an experience everyone should have. In this workshop taught by Erik Swenson you'll be introduced to the basic techniques of dropping a fly 50-60 feet out, as well as the fundamentals of roll-casting. The class ends on the water and you should be comfortable with the basics of fly casting by the end of the day. Casting from a float tube, a unique on-water experience, will also be covered and, weather depending, may be field-based. You are encouraged to bring your own gear. Equipment is available for rent from local outfitters. This is an ideal course for beginners new to fly casting, as well as to advanced fly fishing enthusiasts looking to perfect their cast.
Includes materials fee of $5.00
