Here are some school dates for the 2016 season:
April 24    completed
May 14     full
June 11     full
June 25     1 space available
July 9        4 spaces available

The
schools are designed to cover skill levels ranging from the pure
novice to the “I’ve tried it, I liked it, but I do not know what I’m
doing!”  Under the watchful eye of our instructors, you will lay a solid
foundation for your life long adventure in fly fishing.
Upon
completion of this comprehensive full day school, you will be skilled
and confident enough to pack up your fly fishing gear and head out to
enjoy a trip on the water of your choosing.

The Curriculum
Some of the topics that will be addressed are:
Equipment:  How to
select appropriate tackle for a given fishing situation; line weights
and rod actions.  Knots to get you started.  Selecting the proper
leader to match the fly and the fishing situation.  Understanding the
leader and tippet relationship.
Casting:  You will learn the fundamentals and how to apply them to advanced casting techniques.
Fishing:  An
afternoon of fishing and perfecting techniques learned earlier in the
day.  All fishing is done on a catch and release basis.

 

 

The schools are comprised of two sessions: In-The-Field and Classroom.

 

In-The-Field
We
are blessed to have several convenient parks that border The Little
Miami River, one of our best local waterways. The day will start with
all participants meeting at the park at 9am.  After a full day of
instruction, lunch and fishing, the school will end at 3pm.
The parks
have a lot of room (great for casting), clean restroom facilities, and
picnic shelters so we can enjoy our lunch. The first portion of our day
is spent at a park learning how to cast and covering the other critical
fundamentals of the sport. After lunch, we will migrate our learning to
water and have the option of fishing the Little Miami or a local bass
pond. Weather and water conditions will dictate where we spend the
afternoon.
All equipment for the In-The-Field portion of the school
is provided.  This includes rod, reel, flies and leaders.  If you have
your own equipment, please bring along for evaluation and usage, if
appropriate.  Lunch and drinks are provided.  Water will be available
all day.
The Classroom
portion of the school will be a two-hour session held at Delamere &
Hopkins from 6-8pm on a week night, Monday-Thursday.  Each student will
coordinate the date of their session with the shop for a date after
the In-The-Field portion of the school.  Although we have a list of
topics we want to cover during this session, we find that this is a
valuable time for students to ask questions to fully understand an
aspect of the angler’s gear.
