Have you ever wondered what the allure of fly fishing is?  Is it the calm, gentleness of standing in a therapeutic stream and fly casting? If you have, this course is for you. Participants will be introduced to the world of fly fishing and the benefits, both physical and mental, that are associated with the sport. Students will learn the basic cast and, if interest exists, tying some flies as well.
