Class No 710B – fee $252
Tutor: Mike Weddell
In this course which may (but not necessarily) be a follow-on from the fly tying, participants will cover selection of tackle, trout behaviour, trout food, selection of flies and how to fish them in the various waters of New Zealand. Apart from a few lessons at the College, most of the time will be spent putting theory into practice in some of the finest trout fishing areas in the country.
A fishing licence is a pre-requisite.
