Lesson Itinerary -- Fly Fishing 101
The Fly Fishing 101 class consists of two parts:
1. Learn casting basics - during this part of the class, students learn how to properly hold a fly rod, use a fly reel and learn the proper mechanics of a fly cast. By the end of this segment, students will be making their first fly casts. All ages and skill levels are welcome. (As Orvis is encouraging family participation, ages 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.)
2. Learn how to build a rod outfit and tie basic knots: the first part of the class consists of learning how to assemble a rod outfit needed for casting. Students will learn how to choose a rod size, how the reel corresponds with the rod size and what line to use for different fishing situations. Time permitting, students will also learn basic knots for attaching leader to line and fly to leader.
