June 24-25. Cost: $300
This retreat is aimed at beginner fly fishers, but intermediates who want to brush up or reinforce their skills are welcome as well.
On the afternoon of the first day, Cynthia Harkness of Fearless Fly Fishing, who has more than ten years experience teaching fly fishing and guiding clients on both fresh and salt water, will cover all the basics of fly fishing. From putting a rod together and rigging it up to selecting a fly and tying it on to casting that bug out there and where to cast it, Cynthia will guide you through the process. She will cover the basic gear and terminology, knots, hands-on casting instruction, fish feeding and behavior, and more over three hours on Saturday afternoon.
On the morning of the second day, we will reconvene for a half-day float trip down on area waters where our professional guides will get you on the water and help you put into action everything Cynthia went through the day before.
The cost for the Retreat is $300 per person and includes use of all equipment, the seminar with Cynthia Harkness and a half day float trip, guide tip included. In addition, all participants will get 10 percent off anything in the shop and there will be special deals on starter fly fishing equipment packages.
