Fly Fishing with Emergers and Midges

Saturday, September 24, 2016 - 10:00am

In this course, Wildlife Conservation Corps volunteers Pierre Benoist and Jim Flatley will discuss reading a trout stream, basic knots, fishing emergers and midges and a review of emerger and midge fly patterns. After the morning discussion, students will get to test their new knowledge on the Education Pond. This program is the sixth in a series of seven fly fishing/tying classes. Students completing all seven classes will receive a course completion certificate. Those unable to attend all sessions or not wishing to earn a certificate may pick and choose the classes to attend. Students should bring their own equipment if available. Open to anyone 10 years old and above.
