Saturday, April 29 | Fly Fishing 101
12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Where: IWLA Jim Berrier Memorial Lake, 12057 Clopper Road, Germantown, MD
There is more to fly fishing than just “casting a line”. We have a fun-filled afternoon with sessions on: equipment, knots, flies, the difference between lake and stream fishing, as well as learning about macroinvertebrates. We of course have the ever-popular casting instruction taught by certified FFF instructors. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or need more casting refinement, there is something you can learn at all of the sessions.
Be there by noon to join us for a no-cost lunch. The sessions start at 1:00 p.m.
You must register by Wednesday, April 26 so we know how many will be attending.
Save the date!
