present FLY FISHING BASICS
The Minnesota Fly Fishers, a Twin Cities based club, will offer their 34th annual weekend introduction to the fun and enjoyment of fly fishing again in late April or early May 2021.
UPDATE CONCERNING NEXT SPRING'S CLASS
(posted 8/17/20, updated 8/29/20)
Our plans are still to resume the class in April or early May of 2021. In fact, registrations are proceeding at a brisk pace, and we're currently at capacity.
We've started a waiting list, and will put names on it in the order we receive them.
We anticipate that there will be a few cancellations as we draw closer to the actual class dates - due to the dates (when we get them) not working for some folks, and the overall changing nature of the best-laid plans.
Therefore, if you are placed on the waiting list, there's a good chance we'll ultimately have room for you in the class.
You can get on our waiting list by clicking here.
We've got plenty of skilled instructors. With focused sessions and several hours of casting practice, students easily learn the basics of this engaging sport. The $75 tuition for this class includes two days of instruction, use of our gear, handouts, and workshop materials.
- Basic Equipment - rods, reels, lines, gear
- Tactics for streams, rivers, and lakes
- Ancillary Equipment
- See the syllabus here
What About Gear?
We provide rods & reels for use during the class - no need to bring your own unless you want to. In fact, if you don't have gear, wait until after you take the class! We'll help you select the right gear for the type of fish you want to pursue.
There's not a better value in fly fishing instruction!
Start yourself, your spouse, a child, or a friend on a lifetime sport. Let the Minnesota Fly Fishers introduce you to the fun and adventure of fly fishing.
When and where?
The next class will be held rain or shine on a Saturday & Sunday in the spring of 2020, at the Lynnhurst Community Center, located in South Minneapolis at 1345 Minnehaha Pkwy. W. We'll have loaner equipment available if you need it.
