Fly-fishing and casting instruction for all levels is being offered in a workshop on Saturday, May 15, from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the Martha’s Vineyard Rod and Gun Club in Edgartown.
Learn the basics every fly-fisher needs, from knot-tying and fish-handling, to casting, techniques and tips, presented by John Kollett and Sandra Demel. You will be able to handle equipment and start saltwater fly-fishing right away.
Tailored to your needs, the courses will cover various advanced techniques, including fine tuning your saltwater cast and double hauling. Fly tackle can be provided, or you can bring you own equipment.
The class is open to adults and adolescents and is a good way for a parent and child to get started fly-fishing together.
Preregistration is required, as class size limited to six. The fee is $100 ($85 for club members). An evening guided shore fly-fishing trip is offered for an additional $50.
The same class will be offered on June 12, July 17 and August 7 at the same times. Additional classes can be scheduled for groups on request. For more information, call 508-693-6338 or see on-line buzzardsbayflyfishing.com.
