Class No 209B – fee $252 (Wednesday to Friday)
Tutor: Mike Weddell
This course which may (but not necessarily) be a follow-on from the fly tying covers casting, what trout feed on, what flies to use and how to use them. The selection of tackle will also be covered. We’ll look at fishing both still waters and running waters. 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.
