Lane Trout - 101 and 102
Trout 101 seeks to break down the process into simple
steps, taking the mystery out of the sport. We will
cover subjects such basic casting, roll casting, mending line
and side-arm casting. Separate sessions will cover knot tying,
(which flies to use and why), locating fish and
reading a stream. Also discussed will be fundamentals of
selecting a fly rod and which fly rods to use for given situations.
Because this class is conducted on-stream you can immediately apply
your newly-learned skills to the real conditions of moving
water while you fish our private waters.
