Fly Fishing Skill Building Program - Gear, Gear, and more Gear

  • 11 Nov 2017
  • 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
  • Angler's Lodge


Registration is closed
Cost: free.  This event is open to the public to register. 

This Skills Building program is designed to enhance one's practical knowledge of the sport and to assist all fly fishers wishing to become more successful when out on the lakes and streams. Varying topics are presented by an experienced fly fisher with extensive knowledge about the specific topic.  

Unless there will be no program offered in a particular month, this event is typically held on the 2nd Saturday of each month following the free public casting lessons.  

The November program presented by Garth Thompson titled "Gear, Gear, and More Gear" covers a couple of different topics. The main focus is on the common gear that you may want to carry in your vest, pack, or pocket. The session will also cover wading safety and good catch-and-release practices. A bit of time will be used to review some of the basic rod types, weights, and how to distill that down to what it all means to a new angler.

This is an excellent session for anyone getting into the sport who is a bit overwhelmed with the array of gear out there. We'll go over the basics of what is needed for a couple of different target species and then touch on some of the common terms and gear you might run across. We will also talk about safety with a focus on how to wade safely. Last but not least, we'll review good catch-and-release practices.

Please register online for this event whenever registration has been enabled.
