The Upper Chattahoochee Chapter of Trout Unlimited, Alpharetta Outfitters, The Atlanta Fly Fishing School, Bass Pro Shops, The Fish Hawk, Georgia Women FlyFishers, and Orvis are pleased to announce a comprehensive one-day fly fishing clinic for young men and women, ages 10 to 15. The clinic is designed for the beginning fly fisher and will provide basic instruction in all phases of fly fishing including fly casting, knot tying, insect identification, and conservation. Certified instructors and mentors will work with students to provide individual instruction and answer questions. Each student will be awarded a certificate upon completion and a drawing will be held for a fly rod and reel.
Where and When
The clinic will be held at Roswell Parks’ Garrard Landing (8800 Holcomb Bridge Rd., Roswell, GA 30076) on May 4, 2013 between 8:30AM and 1:30PM. Lunch will be provided. The clinic will be limited to 36 students and is offered at a cost of $20 per student. Parents or guardians may stay and observe the clinic or drop-off the student and pick them up no later than 1:30PM.
What to Bring
Students will be provided all necessary equipment, but should bring weather appropriate outdoor clothing, a brimmed hat, sunglasses or prescription glasses (mandatory safety item), insect repellent, and sunscreen. Students who prefer to use their own fly rod may do so. No hooks will be used on the line; this is an instructional day. All instructors are eager to teach the art of fly fishing and pass along their interest in conservation, so bring lots of enthusiasm to class.
Students who have previously attended this clinic are not eligible to attend again.
