Learn to Fish – Wizard Falls Fly Fishing

May 6 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Adult Workshop: Come enjoy the day in the heart of the Cascades beside the beautiful Metolius River. Learn the basics of fly fishing: tying the knots, reading the water, matching the hatch (matching the fly you fish with to the bugs present on or in the water), and casting techniques. The morning is spent putting these four elements together and the afternoon is spent fishing on the settlement pond at Wizard Falls. You must have current Oregon Fishing License. Your registration fee includes the use of all necessary equipment, instruction/materials. Lunch will be provided.

•Entomology: (Bugs), learn how to find the fly that’s going to match the hatch that might be going on right in front of you.
•Reading the water: Fish are smarter than you think; in order to find them you must know where to look, sometimes they’re not where you think they should be.
•Casting: You’ve all seen it on TV, looks pretty straight forward doesn’t it? Allow our instructors to introduce you to the art of casting.
