Join FRA as we head up to the sometimes overlooked part of our great state, the North Park of Colorado. Participants will spend two days (Fri & Sat) fishing the Delany Buttes lakes as a "fish along". FRA will provide you with float tubes if you dont have one to dial in on some really huge fish that inhabit these amazing lakes. Fish here average in the 18in range and many fish over 26" are caught on a regular basis. We should be down there during the chironomid hatch and fishing bugs vertically through the water can be an incredible experience on these lakes.
The purpose of this introductory course is to provide a beginner's most basic look at the world of fly fishing. This class is for the "never ever". The class is a one day, 4 hour class that begins with 2 hours of classroom instruction covering knots, basic rigging and the basics of dry fly fishing and nymphing. The second part of the class is conducted at a nearby lake and students are taught the fundamentals of casting.
Wallace Westfeldt will explore the science of fly fishing. Discover aquatic entomology and its importance to your success on the river. This is a beginning to intermediate level course designed to help make fly fishing and insect identification as easy as the ABC's. If you want to take your fishing to the next level this is the class that will take you there.
