Six Sessions

Learn the fundamentals of the art of fly fishing - the equipment, the process, how to cast

and how to present different types of flies to waiting fish. Discussions will cover the cost

involved, fly fishing knots, entomology, where to fish and the importance of conservation

to protect and preserve our nation’s fisheries. Trout Unlimited’s Taconic Chapter has

generously agreed to supply fly rods, reels, line, leaders, and flies for use during the

classes. Class sessions will include indoor practice as well as a fly casting and fishing

lesson in a stream. Participants will need waders for the “in stream” lesson. Women are

especially encouraged to try out this contemplative outdoor sport. LOTTERY: 12
