The Introduction to Fly Fishing special interest course is returning to WVU Potomac State College this spring. The course will be taught by PSC Professor Tom Sydow and local fishing guide Charlie Laffey.
This short course incorporates both classroom sessions as well as hands-on instruction in casting and fishing techniques.
Participants will learn about equipment, knot tying, entomology (the bugs fish eat), reading the water, and on-stream tactics. Demonstrations in fly tying and rod building will also be given in classroom sessions.
All necessary equipment will be provided by instructors. Course participants will meet on the PSC campus in Science Hall, Room 120, from 5 to 8 p.m., every other Thursday on March 9 and 23; April 6 and 20; and May 4.
Participants are encouraged to sign up early as this class tends to fill up quickly.
