Curious about fly fishing? Ever wanted to give it a try but didn’t know how to get started?
If so, join us at the Hays Nature Preserve Saturday March 10th for an introduction to Fly Fishing.
TVFF in association with Huntsville’s Operation Green Team and Orvis Huntsville will sponsor an introduction to fly fishing Saturday March 10th from 9:00 am till 3:00 pm.
Instructors will provide participants hands on exposure to the sport including:
-Introduction to Fly Fishing, see what gear you need and where to get it
-Introduction to Fly Tying, tie your first fly
-Basic Fly Casting, how does fly casting differ from casting with conventional tackle
-Try your hand at fly fishing, fish your newly tied fly in Bar Lake and hopefully catch your first fish on a fly
Classes will be scheduled and repeated throughout the day so if you miss the 9 am start you can still take part.
Equipment and materials will be provided and there is no cost to the participants. Also, you don’t need a fishing license
to fish in the preserve Bar Lake, but license is required to fish in the river or any other areas of the Preserve.
Children 11 and under must be accompanied by a parent.
The Hays Nature Preserve is located at 7153 Hwy 431 South, Owens Cross Roads, Huntsville, AL 35763 and west of
Huntsville past Hampton Cove.
The classes will be in the Education Center just inside the Preserve entrance and Bar Lake will be the site of the casting and fishing. Attached is a link to a preserve map:
