GPFF Foundational Fly Fishing Seminar

Zoom Edition,

1st Session March 12th, 2nd Session 13th 2022

Grizzly Peak Fly Fishers is dedicated to the ongoing education in the art, science, and sport of fly fishing.  One of our programs is the GPFF Foundational Fly Fishing Seminar.  Historically, offered in the fall, the seminar provides the entry through intermediate level anglers everything they need to know about the sport, including: Essential Equipment needed, Knots & Leaders, Casting, Stream water reading, Entomology, Fish Identification & Fly use, Landing and Releasing Fish and more.

This is NOT a ‘survey’ course, it is a full, comprehensive course that will give you the confidence and preparedness to move forward productively in the sport.
