This class, in partnership with Thorne Ecological Institute, is perfect for the student who has little or no experience in fly fishing. We will explore the Boulder Creek & St. Vrain Watersheds and tackle the lakes, reservoirs, and streams of Boulder. Patience is required as students learn first how to assemble, use, and care for fly fishing gear and then learn the fundamentals of fly fishing: casting, knot tying, and how to read the river. We’ll learn that becoming a fisherman or fisherwoman is about more than just casting as we study insects along many waterways to see how they grow and become food for fish, learn about Colorado's native and diverse fish populations, understand the interconnectedness of a river ecosystem, and acknowledge the responsibility of anglers. Finally, we will put our "fish knowledge" to the test by practicing our fly fishing techniques to catch fish!
NOTE: This class meets at different locations around Boulder County to provide the best place for the class’s specific subject matter.
Parents will be e-mailed 1-2 weeks prior to class with directions to the specific locations and a gear list.
Tuition includes cost of flies and rental gear.
