FOR BEGINNERS ONLY
(Females only age 12 & up)
Saturday / Sunday 9am-4pm
A 2 Day Class -
Fly Fishing 101
Created and Taught by Carolyn Hellmuth
This two day class is chock-full of information for the beginner! Terminology, entomology, knots, rod assembly and casting a line are the tip of the iceburg. You'll also learn about water safety, fishing etiquette, bug stages and how they relate to flies used, when to use what fly, and more.
This is a full 2 day (12 hour) class not meant for anyone dashing in and out. It is for those who know nothing about fly fishing but want to learn. Others should not sign up. You only need a fly rod/reel with line, not the full outfit and eye protection (sunglasses/eyeglasses acceptable).
Registration is free, but sign up soon. This class is limited in size - just a few openings left! Loaner rods from Trout Unlimited Chapter 698 are available upon request.
This fly-fishing event is being supported by White River Trout Unlimited and the generosity of volunteer leaders like Carolyn Hellmuth and Lori Sloas and many businesses of Gassville and Cotter.
All ladies registered for the 101 class, workshops or Meet and Greet are automatically entered to win a Sage Rod and Reel set donated by Dally's Ozark Fly Fisher!
