About The Class
Are you dreaming of casting your line over a lake? Join us for a chill day and we'll show you the ropes of lake fishing. We'll cover bank and boat strategies, and you just need to bring your own tackle - 8’-6” to 10’ rod/reel with a 5-8 weight line, a floating line and a couple of 9-foot 0X-2X leaders. And don't worry - the workshop is split into two parts!
Early morning class in the field covers details about fly fishing gear, knots, entomology, and tactics. We also review fish identification, handling practices, plus relevant regulations and etiquette for fishing lakes. Our team uses proven fundamentals and preferred items to ensure a successful and pleasant day of fishing.
We will transition to the lakeshore in the afternoon, bringing along a range of rods and reels. Students will learn the fundamentals of casting with a fly rod, as well as how water currents, wind, and the environment affect trout habitats and eating habits. We will delve into the ecology of the lake and the needs of the trout to survive.
