Learning what makes fly fishing unique, fly tying and identifying fish are some of the things you will learn at the Fundamentals of Fly Fishing workshop at the Waterville Valley Recreation Department on four Saturdays: May 31, June 7, 14 and 21, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Presented by the NH Fish and Game and the Pemigewasset Chapter of Trout Unlimited, Fundamentals of Fly Fishing is a great opportunity to learn the basic techniques, such as rod, reel and line assembly, basic equipment, casting instructions, knots, fish habitat, forage, identification and ethics. The four sessions include classroom time and a field trip to round off your fishing experience.
All instructors are certified by the NH Fish and Game and bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to help the beginning anglers get started.
The workshop fee is $10 per person. Equipment will be provided, but bring your own if you have it. Equipment recommendations include a 5/6 weight fly rod & reel and 5/6 weight floating line. The workshop is limited to the first 10 registrants. Participants must be age 10 or over and minors must be accompanied by parents. Hats and glasses are recommended for the casting season.
