/ Articles / ‘Introduction to Fly Fishing and Casting’ on July 11
The first of many Nicolet College Outdoor Adventure classes
From July through October the Outdoor Adventure Program at Nicolet College will feature more than 30 different offerings that include a broad range of outdoor experiences and learning opportunities.
From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 11, Robert Paine will lead the “Introduction to Fly Fishing and Casting” class at the Nicolet College Fieldside Center 102.
All of the basics to get started with fly fishing will be covered in this introductory class, which will cover fly fishing equipment for different species and situations, flies and how to fish them, terminology, and the different fly fishing techniques and casts. Much of the class will be spent learning and fine tuning the basic forward cast, sidearm cast, wiggle cast, and roll cast with ample individualized instruction. All equipment will be provided, but participants can bring their own if they prefer.
The cost to participate in this class is $35.
Nicolet is following local, state, and federal guidance in regards to COVID-19. A maximum of 10 people, including instructors, are allowed for each class. Any classes that have an indoor component have been moved to larger classrooms to accommodate at least six feet of physical distancing.
