Isothermal Community College Polk offers fly tying and fly fishing class

Published 3:38 pm Monday, April 26, 2010

Michael Lewis, a N.C. licensed fishing guide, will teach you the basics of how to tie all kinds of flies for fresh water fishing. Its easier than you think. Youll learn about fly fishing tackle, terminology, reading a lake or river, safety, where to find fish, and where the best fishing spots are.

You can bring your own fly rod if you have one, but if not, Lewis has some to practice with in class, and will make recommendations for your first purchase. Youll spend a Saturday at a local river to put to use what youve learned.

A North Carolina fishing license is not required for the class, but may be necessary for fishing. This class runs May 10 through June 19.
