This program is for the beginner fly fishing angler or a refresher course for anyone looking to reconnect with the art of fly fishing. Programming will begin after dinner Friday evening with a workshop on fly rods, reels, line, flies, knots and basic skills. On Saturday morning after breakfast participants will be given hands on lessons aimed at handling a fly rod, proper casting techniques and what to do when you get a bite. After lunch, participants will be split into groups with half heading to the Roach River and the other half headed to Roach Pond. Here individuals will receive on the water instruction on casting technique and reading trout waters. This will give fisherman a better understand of fish habits and where to find them. Halfway through the day the groups will switch fishing waters so that they have equal time learning on the river and on the pond. Throughout the weekend guides will be available to give instruction, help understand flies, fly selection, and help anglers correct their casting technique. Saturday evening after supper there will be an evening program on native and wild brook trout and what the AMC is doing to preserve their fragile habitat.
