I had the pleasure of doing my first LTCC fly fishing class in a couple of years this past Sunday. What a great time I had with the 4 students who had signed up for the class. We spent the entire day learning and practicing a variety of skills to help them get on the water, catch some fish, and have some fun. We started at Tahoe Fly Fishing Outfitters where we talked about equipment, then to Paradise Park in Meyers to work on casting skills, and ended the day on the West Carson River. I was impressed with their determination and work efforts with their casting, line management, and mending skills. All of them showed great improvement by the end of the day. I fully enjoyed their company throughout the day as I got to know them all personally. That to me is the payoff at the end of a long day. Connecting with others through an activity like fly fishing is what makes outdoor activities special and meaningful. I will be doing 3 other full day Introduction to Fly Fishing Workshops this summer. They take place on 6/25, 7/16, and 8/6. Contact myself or the shop to sign up or get more information. Class size is limited to 6 people, so sign up and allow me to connect with you. Also, stay tuned as we are working to make these Introduction to Fly Fishing Workshops even better this summer by adding a few things. I will keep everyone updated to those additions when we finalize them.
