New Program: 3-Day Intro To Fly Fishing Course In May

We’ve just added a 3-day introduction to fly fishing course at the field school May 28-30. It will be guided by Paul Sveum, Master Maine Guide. Tuition is $450. Details are here.

Gear, Casting, Fishing, Fly Tying

Participants will arrive Thursday evening and we’ll start Friday morning at 8. We’ll learn the art of casting in our private pond, then move down to the river for learning about casting in moving water. We’ll fish nearby rivers and streams (to be determined by water levels and temperature, which you’ll learn all about), and do some exploring by canoe. The course is over at noon on Sunday.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
