Level 1 Learn To Fly Fish Classroom Session #2

This is the second of two days of classroom training for the 2022 Level 1 Learn To Fly Fish Group.    We will divide the Level 1 class of 40 students into two groups of 20 students each in order to accommodate the limited capacity of the lodge.   While one group is in the lodge with classroom instruction, the other group will be on the ponds for casting instruction.

You must be a member of the 2022 Level 1 Learn To Fly Fish class and be current with both your 2022 annual club membership dues, as well as the registration fees for the LTFF program.  You must also have successfully completed the Level 1 Casting Qualifier in order to participate in these classroom sessions.

George Revel, owner of Lost Coast Outfitters and past president of GGACC, along with John Murphy, will lead these sessions covering an introduction to gear, fishing locations, entomology, fly patterns, reading the water, wading safety, knots, rigging, and other important information for beginning fly anglers.

Group 1 will meet from 8AM to Noon for classroom instruction in Angler's Lodge.  Following lunch, Group 1 will attend a casting lesson led by Chris Korich from 1pm to 5pm. 

Group 2 will attend a casting lesson led by Chris Korich from 8AM to Noon.  Following lunch, Group 2 will meet in Angler's Lodge for classroom instruction from 1pm to 5pm.

Level 1 students should register for one (and only one) of these two sessions on April 30th.  

For this session you should:

- bring a pen and notepad for your own notes

-- bring your mask.   While Covid restrictions are easing, including required masks, let's respect each other as we will be inside the lodge in tight quarters and wear our masks properly for the classroom sessions.

-bring water, snacks---whatever you will need for yourself.   A coffee service and light snack will be provided.  Lunch will not be provided.

-bring your rod/reel setup of fly casting practice (with a yarn fly and leader), as well as eye protection.

-review your notes from the April 2nd classroom instruction.

At this time we cannot promise that the sessions will be videotaped or recorded.  If you are unable to attend, it is recommended that you contact a fellow Level 1 student to leverage their notes from the class.  Whatever handouts are provided in the class will also be available if you are unable to attend.
