Living Waters Fly Fishing 101 Workshops This Saturday August 4th. in Round Rock

| August 2, 2012

Casting, Rigging, and Fly Selection – Saturday, August 4th.

We’ve had an influx of budding fly fishermen and women by the shop this summer, and figured it would be a great time to do a “Fly Fishing 101” event day geared towards three different areas: Casting, Rigging, and Fly Pattern Selection. Saturday’s event schedule is listed below, and call the shop at (512) 828-FISH for more info.

10:00 AM – Casting Basics Demonstration

Before it gets too terribly hot, we’ll head outside to discuss the principles of fly casting. Chris will be going over some basic casting instructions, and a few tips, but come prepared with some questions if you have any particular issues with your own casting that you’d like us to cover.

1:00 PM – Tackle and Rigging Overview

Chris and Matt will be presenting proper rigging for several different kinds of fly fishing, including the differences in leader size and strength, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of traditional leader material vs. fluorocarbon. We’ll also discuss the knots we tie, including a couple tricks that you may not have seen. Finally, we’ll talk about several different types of rigging, such as a traditional double nymph indicator rig, a heavy streamer rig, a drop/dropper rig, and a few saltwater rigs as well.

3:00 – Fly Selection

One of the most common questions we receive here at the shop pertains to fly selection. Knowing what to cast out there will make or break your day on the water. We’ll take you through our fly boxes and discuss proper fly selection, including some “must-have” flies for you trout, warmwater, and saltwater boxes!
