REFRESH YOUR FIRST STEPS TO FLY FISHING - INTRODUCTORY FLY FISHING COURSE

SUNDAY 13 October 2019 from 09:00 to 16:00

Nelson/Marlborough Fish & Game Rooms , Champion Rd.

With the use of videos and interactive workshops Tony Entwistle and other

experienced club members will help you become a more successful angler,

with an introduction to the basic principles and practises of fly fishing for trout.

 Learn about the appropriate equipment to use and how, where

and when to use it.

 Develop an understanding of the habits of trout, the insects they

feed on and the habitats of both.

 Learn basic stream-craft theory.

 Learn the knots, rigs and fly fishing techniques that help exploit

this knowledge to enable trout to be caught more consistently.

 Understand the principles of safe trout handling and the

conservation ethic of Catch-and-Release.

 Subsequent to this course the Club will run a program for members

wanting to be mentored on the water, by a senior Club member.

(Register for the mentor program email Richard Breakspear at

Open to Club Members for $30.00.

Proceeds to the Sports Fishing for Youth Trust

their own rods, reels and lines for the casting session.
