Times can be catered to your schedule but schools usually begin around 9am starting off with a meet and greet at the shop and a casting lesson at our pond. Following that is an overview on gear used and why we use it. We will then spend a couple hours learning to tie flies. After the fly tying ends we will take a break for lunch and then go fish! The day will wrap up around 6pm  at the Commodores where you can have dinner! The following morning we will meet, go over a few crucial knots and learn how to tie them then go fish again! Class will end around 1 (For 2-Day Class Only).
