WSU Fly Fishing Class

The Art Of Fly Fishing

Fly Fishing 101

Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself. We all learned the sport of fly fishing at different times and from different people. Some learned from books, some from on the water with a friend or mentor. If you’re new to the sport of fly fishing, you can claim not to know a lot about fly fishing, but if you have been around for a while you can’t make that statement.  Fly Fishing 101 will be a lecture style class covering a range of information about Fly Fishing.  This class is not only for beginners but also for the person who has been around for a year or two and wants to expand their knowledge of this great sport.

Fly Fishing 101 is a course for the beginner, as well as the intermediate interested in learning more about the art of fly fishing. This course will cover all aspects of the sport from the history of fly fishing to the equipment needed to get started in the sport. Topics covered during this course will include Fish, Entomology, Water and Conservation. Participants have the opportunity to learn about both wet and dry flies. Students will receive information about how to buy that first fly rod and reel and how to maintain fly fishing equipment that they already own. Participants will get hands on training on how to tie fly fishing knots used while on the water as well as how to rig a fly rod for fishing different types of flies. All equipment will be provided.

Fly Fishing 102

So it does not matter if you have never cast a fly rod before or if you have been casting for few years now. We all need a casting check-up from time to time. I can almost guarantee you that you have developed a bad casting habit. No matter where or when or how, always be open to improving your fly fishing casting education. You now have the option to work on that cast by attending the Fly Casting 102 class at Wichita State this fall semester at the WSU Huges Campus at 29th and Oliver. The instructors for this class will be Rick Brown and Doug Meyer. We will provide the rods, line and leaders. All you have to do is bring the desire to learn and or improve you casting skills. The main path we will be going down is to provide a series of step by step lessons and drills which are needed to perform hovering a fly over a target 30 feet away 4-5 times and then present the fly to a target 30 inches in diameter. This will include periodic video shots of student’s casts to evaluate at class time to aid in quickening their progression toward the class objective.

NEW Fly Fishing 102 is a course for the beginner, as well as the intermediate interested in learning more about the art of casting a fly rod.
