About the event
This is a very basic, on-land class and no prior fishing experience is necessary! We will discuss the parts and purpose of the fly rod, reel, and lines. Once we are familiar with the equipment, we will work on casting on land (forward cast, roll cast, side cast), and practice the most frequently used knots (double surgeons, improved clinch, loop to loop). This is a small class with no more than eight people so that you can benefit from 1:1 instruction and have a more personal experience. Plus you get to learn at a beautiful venue on the Big Thompson River and enjoy a glass of wine (one glass included with the cost of the clinic)!

*All gear is provided but if you have your own rod that you want to cast with, please bring it!
