Introduction to Fly Fishing

Course Description

We will discuss a bit of the history of the sport, but concentrate on what a beginner would need to know about equipment, etymology, ichthyology, selection and presentation of the fly, as well as casting. While fly fishing can be done to any fish, the class will focus on the basics of trout fishing. Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him to fly fish and he will need to buy rods, reels, lines, leaders, tippets, flies, waders, boots, nets, vests, fly boxes, a wading staff... We will make sense of all of this during the class.
