BEGINNING FLY FISHING Saturday, September 13th 9:30 AM — Introduction to Fly Casting (Traditional and Tenkara) We’ll be kicking things off with a casting class catered towards beginners. Join us for a clinic on the basic principles of fly casting. Casting traditional and tenkara fly rods will be demonstrated and discussed, with plenty of interactive learning opportunities! 11:00 AM — Basic Rigging for the Hill Country (Traditional and Tenkara) This presentation will explain the how’s and why’s behind rod, reel, and line selection for fly fishing our local waters. We’ll also discuss the advantages and disadvantages of different fly line tapers, and show you the knots you need to get rigged up and ready to fish! 1:00 PM — Local Hot Spots – Llano River, San Gabriel River, and Brushy Creek We did this presentation back in May, and it was a big hit. Come find out where, how, and when to fish our local fishing hot spots. We will be giving a presentation on multiple hill country rivers and will discuss fishing techniques and flies according to each river. After this presentation you can consider yourself to be armed and dangerous from a local fly fishing standpoint! If you’re new to the area, this is a presentation you won’t want to miss! 3:30 PM — Fly Tying for Beginners This class is designed to walk people through the essential basics of fly tying. We will walk each attendee through tying a couple basic fly patterns that fish well on our local water, as well as discussing the uses of the many fly tying tools out there! This is a great class for beginners as well that those who want to brush up on their fly tying and tool knowledge. If you already have a vise and tools, feel free to bring them! We do have a limited amount of loaner vises and tools as well. Wednesday, September 17th – Fly Tying Night Come join us for our regularly scheduled fly tying night. We meet at Pok-E-Jo’s BBQ at 6:00 P.M. for dinner and gather back at the shop around 7:00 P.M. for tying. Make sure that you tell Pok-E-Jo’s that you are with the Fly Tying Group, and you will get 10% off your meal! There is round table tying for those wanting to tie their own patterns, and there is also a designated “Fly of the Night,” for which all material and instruction is provided.
