The Art of Fly Fishing

The beautiful, scenic Housatonic River is an inspiring backdrop to learn how to fly fish. You will be given an intensive lesson in the art of casting your line and dropping the fly onto the water and then moving it on or beneath the surface. Your guide will teach you to cast in such a way that your line lands smoothly on the water and the fly appears as natural as possible.

This is a catch and release fishing experience. Children over 12 years old are most welcome and this can be a wonderful way for the family to spend quality time together learning something new.
