Lethbridge College - Fishing classes


Looking at getting into fly fishing? This four night course will get you started and catching trout in Southern Alberta’s scenic foothills and mountain country. Learn what all the passion is about. First night introduces you to fly fishing. Emphasis is on equipment selection; rods, reels, fly line, belly boats, waders, boots and all the gadgets. Learn to tie all the needed knots. If you have equipment please bring it to class. If you are thinking about buying new equipment please wait until after the first class. Second night introduces you to the bugs (entomology) and flies of fly fishing. What’s on the menu for trout in Police Lake and the Crowsnest River? How do you “read” a river and know where to cast your flies? Find out which flies work and why. Third and fourth night learn to cast. Bring your fly rod and learn the casting stroke and how to do it better. What are “slack line techniques” and why do we use them? What do I do if there is no room for a backcast? Learn the basics in a wind free environment and watch videos of the experts. Note: Some materials may be needed and students may choose to purchase these from the instructor. Families welcome (children age 10 and up when accompanied by an adult)
