Basic Fly Casting

  Have you always wanted to learn the secrets of Fly Casting?  Join us this evening and learn all about the techniques and equipment you'll need to get started.  We'll take you outside and teach you the basic fly cast and help you understand how the rod, line and leader all work together to make effective fly fishing casts.

  We'll outline the differences between spin casting and fly casting, explain what a 'matched' fly rod outfit is, and teach you how to string the rod and go over the basic four-part cast and false casting.  We have rods and reels here for you to practice, and look forward to getting you comfortable with this majestic sport!

  Give us a call, we'll put down your name, so we know who to expect, or simply RSVP here on Meetup!

    Hi MIchelle,

    I tried to send you an email about this event through our individual profile but I don't think that worked. I am definitely interested in attending one of these clinics. ( Haven't fly-fished or tied flies in 40 years.) I had called LLBean Discovery Center in Maine back in July about theirAugust 14 clinic, asking if they ever did them in the Chicago area and they said "No. We only do kayaking clinics in the Chicago stores." So I'm really thrilled to find out you offer these.

    I have a conflict with August 8th. I just found your MeetUp site and I see that you offered fly-casting on July 25th so I will keep my eyes peeled for another offering. Maggie Helms
