Fly Casting Lessons

Our first casting class of 2019! Join us for a two hour free casting lesson. This class is geared towards beginning casters, but experienced casters are welcome as well. Bring your own rod & reel set up or borrow one of ours. Instruction will focus on building solid casting fundamentals. Dress for the weather as evenings can be cool in April.

The class is free but spaces are limited. Please RSVP at 586-1550 to reserve your spot. 

Community Casting Night
Wednesday May 22nd 
6-8pm at Twin Lakes 
Come join Trout Unlimited, Raincountry Flyfishers and Alaska Fly Fishing Goods for our annual casting night. We'll have beginning casting lessons, a free barbeque and drinks, demo rods to cast, great camaraderie and new for this year an accuracy casting game. The casting game will have a series of hula hoops at various distances that you will try to land your fly in. 

There will also be a free raffle for kids only! Kids 12 and under can enter to win one of 3 Echo Gecko kids fly rod & reel packages. A generous member of our fly fishing community has donated these outfits in the hopes of more kids taking up fly fishing.

Hosted by Chris Orman and Kayla Roys. Maybe composite loops, maybe traditional vs. nontraditional materials, topwater flies, or dries… We haven’t decided yet. This will be a more advanced instruction than the last. If you have your own vise and tools, we suggest bringing them along. Space is limited as are tools. All materials will be provided.
