Landing a fly gracefully on a quiet inland lake or gently on a rushing river is an experience everyone should have. In this workshop taught by Erik Swenson, you'll be introduced to the basic techniques of dropping a fly 50-60 feet out, as well as the fundamentals of roll-casting. The class ends on the shores of Lake Superior and you should be comfortable with the basics of fly casting by the end of the day. You are encouraged to bring your own gear. Equipment is available for rent from local outfitters. This is an ideal course for beginners new to fly casting, as well as to advanced fly fishing enthusiasts looking to perfect their cast.
