Once again this spring and summer, West Winds will offer a series of introductory fly-fishing classes. These classes will serve to provide the novice flyfisher with the basic skills to get a successful start in this rewarding passtime.

  • basic fly casting
  • knot tying
  • reading water, identifying where fish live
