This Float Tube Clinic on Saturday morning, August 7, from 9:30am to 12:00pm is designed to prepare the Level 3/4 "Learn to Fly Fish" students to fly fish on stillwaters using a float tube. The primary objective is to teach basic float tube use and safety. The Clinic instructors will provide float tubes, fins, and PDF's for participants to try-out in the West pond.  

LTFF students will need to bring their own waders and boots (or other booties) to this clinic if they wish to try-out one or more float tubes.  They should also  bring their 9 ft 5 wt fly rod and reel to try casting to some targets while sitting in a float tube.

Students will navigate a course in the far west pond that includes how to safely get in the tube, experience moving backwards, line management and casting.
