Designed for the person who has never fly fished and is interested in getting started. This course will teach you everything you need to know to start and enjoy the sport of fly fishing. For the person who has done some fly fishing or would like to get back into fly fishing, the Introduction to Fly Fishing / Fly Casting course is a great refresher. The course covers equipment, knots, finding fish, local entomology and fly casting. We will start you from the very beginning and teach you the proper techniques to cast using a fly rod. Learn to cast into the wind and add more distance.
Each student will receive a detailed fly fishing / fly casting manual. Equipment is not needed for the first night. Each student will require a fly rod, reel and line for the rest of the course.
The Introduction to Fly Fishing course is 5 nights (2 hours each). Held only once a year beginning in early April. Classes are in the evening 7 pm – 9 pm.
Details can be found in the Vernon Parks and Recreation Spring Active Living Guide.

2017 Polson Park Pond Kids Free Fishing Weeked has finished for the year. Saturday saw about 421 young fishers come down to the pond to try their luck catching some of the 1,000 rainbow trout provided by the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC. On Sunday about 384 young fishers showed up to catch the rest of the rainbows. For some of these young fishers, this was there first time fishing and for many this was the first time they caught a fish. As it is with fishing, not everyone took home a fish. We look forward to next year, hope to see you there.
Fish Arrive – Wednesday, 26 April 2017, usually around noon. Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC will deliver approximatly 1,000 Rainbow Trout.
The Kalamalka Flyfishers Society along with the Shuswap Fly Fishers, Enderby Fish and Game Club, with fish provided by the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC present a day for kids to learn how to fish hosted by the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre.
The day is about more than catching fish, although that does happen. Kids are encouraged to attend a variety of stations: fly tying, fly casting, fishing pond, entomology (insects), and others and have their pass book stamped. They can then enter their pass book to win a number of prizes.
Volunteers are on hand to explain the proper use of fishing tackle and assist the kids as needed.
