Fly-Fishing School at Hanford Mills Museum


07/05/2012 - The Dave Brandt Chapter of Trout Unlimited is offering an Introduction to Fly-Fishing workshop at Hanford Mills Museum on Saturday, July 7, 2012, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The day-long workshop includes class room instruction in the basic knowledge needed to balance the rod, reel and line, elements of entomology, fly fishing knots, stream reading, and a review of recommended fly fishing paraphernalia. The classroom instruction will be interspersed with practical hands-on casting at the Museum's pond.

Participants are asked to bring a fly-casting rod and line if you have one, however, an outfit is not mandatory as a fly rod and line will be loaned on site to participants who do not yet own one. Participants should bring a bag lunch as well.
