Fly Fishing and Fly Tying

The fine art of fly fishing is easy to learn, very effective and fun for everyone. This course is designed for both beginners and advanced fly fishers alike. Regardless of your level of experience, there is plenty to learn from basic casting techniques to advanced casts like the snake roll, pile cast and curve cast, and to stream craft, lake craft and insect entomology.

We will cover all aspects of tackle selection from rods, reels, fly lines, leaders, tippets etc including fly selection, patterns and basic fly construction. If you just want to catch a carp on fly in one of the local lakes, or a trout in a mountain stream, then this course is not to be missed.
