Are you interested in learning to fish with flies? Designed for the beginner, this course will cover everything you need to get started catching fish on a fly right here in Nebraska. Previous fishing experience helpful, but not required. You will be introduced to the basics of fishing with a fly rod for all species of fish, not just trout. We will cover common fishing knots used in fly fishing, the mechanics of fly casting, and knowledge of basic equipment so you will know what to purchase if you choose. We will conclude with a lesson of fishing at Holmes Lake in Lincoln. Fly rods, reel and flies are provided, but bring your own rod if you have one.
Hosted with support from Cornhusker Fly Fishers, the Lincoln/Omaha Fly Fishing Club, and the UNL Fly Fishing Class/Club.
