Waterville Valley’s fish whisperer, Ray Kucharski, will be instructing a Fundamentals of Fly-Fishing class at the Recreation Department on Saturday, May 12, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. This one day ‘how to fly fish’ class is hosted by the Pemigewasset Chapter of Trout Unlimited and NH Fish and Game Department.
Fundamentals of Fly-Fishing will cover the basics of fly-fishing techniques, including what makes fly-fishing unique, rod reel and line assembly, basic equipment, knots, fish habitat, fish forage, fish identification, fishing ethics and casting instructions.
Ray not only has years of fly-fishing experience, but he is certified by the NH Fish and Game Department. Pemi TU volunteers will be there to help the beginning angler get started in the art of fly fishing.
Rods (5 weight fly rod, reel and floating line) will be provided, but bring your own equipment if you have any. Hats and glasses are recommended for the casting session. Bring a bag lunch.
The class will be limited to the first 10 registrants. Participants must be age 10 or over and minors must be accompanied by parent(s). The cost is just $10, which covers the cost of the facility rental.
