Note: Anglers Lodge Reserved from 7AM to 6PM for this training session!
Level 1 Learn To Fly Fish Classroom Session #1
This is the first of two days of classroom training for the 2023 Level 1 Learn To Fly Fish Group. We will divide the Level 1 class of 40 students who have successfully completed the casting qualifier into two groups of 20 students each in order to accommodate the limited capacity of the lodge.
A second day of training will be held on Saturday April 1st, building on the topics discussed in this first session.
You must be a member of the 2023 Level 1 Learn To Fly Fish class and be current with both your 2023 annual club membership dues, as well as the registration fees for the LTFF program. You must also have successfully completed the Level 1 Casting Qualifier in order to participate in these classroom sessions.
George Revel, owner of Lost Coast Outfitters and past president of GGACC, along with John Murphy, will lead these sessions covering an introduction to gear, fishing locations, entomology, fly patterns, reading the water, wading safety, knots, rigging, and other important information for beginning fly anglers.
Group 1 will meet from 8AM to Noon.
Group 2 will meet from 1pm to 5pm.
Level 1 students should register for one (and only one) of these two sessions on March 18th. Registration for the second classroom session will be communicated and posted at a later date.
For this session you should:
-bring a pen and notepad for your own notes
- bring your mask. While Covid restrictions are easing, including required masks, let's respect each other as we will be inside the lodge in tight quarters and wear our masks properly for the classroom sessions.
-bring water, snacks---whatever you will need for yourself. A coffee service and light snack will be provided. Lunch will not be provided.
At this time we cannot promise that the sessions will be videotaped or recorded. If you are unable to attend, it is recommended that you contact a fellow Level 1 student to leverage their notes from the class. Whatever handouts are provided in the class will also be available if you are unable to attend.
