Beginner Casting Class: Tuesdays Sept 9 – Oct 21 at 7pm
If you’re new to fly casting or need to improve your casting skills, be sure to attend our annual fly casting class led by our group of very experienced casters. You’ll learn all the basic casts required to catch fish, including the roll cast, lay down and pickup, change of direction, basic mends, and possibly even the single haul. We’re moving the class to the fall as preparation for our On The Water Clinic and club outings that start in January. The class is free and open to all. Orientation is 9/9 at 7pm.
