Fly Fishing for Beginners

If you’d love to fly-fish but feel intimidated by the equipment and techniques, get set to cast! We’ll begin with basic equipment setup, including rods, reels, lines, leaders and flies. Try your hand at tying simple knots (not the flies themselves) to set up the rod. We’ll cover the fundamentals of casting, stripping and reeling, as well as how to choose likely spots to try your luck. Receive classroom instruction in the first session, and practise outdoors at Whitemud Creek in the second. Bringing your own fly rod is optional. If you do, please also bring fly line, a leader and flies.

Sorry, there are no upcoming sessions scheduled for this course
