Fly Fishing Academy

Begins on March 10, 2017

Registration fee: $50

Registration for this course is held at 6:30 pm on the SECOND TUESDAY OF MARCH, at Bethany Christian Church (Map), with the first class starting immediately upon completion of registration. There are five 2-hour classroom sessions, held at the church, and four 2-hour Saturday Morning casting classes, held at the Meyer Park ponds (directions are provided at the first class). The casting classes are on the Saturdays following the  classroom classes, and are typically held from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.

This program is designed to teach the most basic of fly fishing beginner about the rods, the reels, the lines, the leaders and tippets, and how to tie the most basic knots, in a classroom setting. There is also a class on other items, such as waders, wading shoes, vests, glasses, etc., that are also essential to the fly fisher. Safety while pursuing the sport is stressed throughout the course.

The proper way to hold the rod and the line for casting is the starting point for the casting classes, and progresses from there to an introduction to the basics of a double-haul cast in the last casting class. Upon completion of the casting classes, the student will be fully capable of making a 30-40 ft, or more, cast with ease.

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to fish wherever they choose with confidence that they can catch fish. (The fish just have to cooperate!)

  1. Need a place to tie or just want to get inspired, well then fishing tackle unlimited on the Katy freeway is hosting limited space for you. Just bring your vise and tools and materials on Saturdays from 9:30am til 12 noon. There will be a 10% discount on material purchased that day. Starts this Saturday and then every other Saturday in February and March. Here are the dates 2/13,2/27, 3/12, and 3/26.
