Introduction To Fly Fishing / Fly Casting Course

Learn to fly fish with the help of the Kalamalka Fly Fishers Society Introduction to Fly Fishing / Fly Casting course.

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 of course casting using a fly rod. We will start you from the very beginning and teach you the proper techniques to cast using a fly rod and line. 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 fly rod should be a 5 weight with matching floating line. Don’t worry if you don’t know what that is, you will by the end of the first night.

The Introduction to Fly Fishing / Fly Casting course is 5 nights (2 hours each). Held only once a year beginning in late March. Classes are Tuesday evenings from 7 pm – 9 pm. First night will be at the Club located at 4607-23 St, Vernon. Cost of the course is $130.00 plus tax (Vernon VRP Program 2024), $162.50 plus tax (outside Vernon VRP Program 2024).
