Beginner Fly Fishing Clinic No. 1
Our 4-hour Beginner Fly Fishing Clinic No. 1 is for the beginning fly fisher to learn the basics of fly fishing. Our main objective is to provide you with a strong foundation of knowledge and skills to successfully utilize as you progress in your journey of fly fishing. In addition to receiving a “Kern River Fly Fishing Handbook”, we will cover fly casting, entomology, fly fishing techniques, strategies, knots and leader construction, fly selection, wading and safety, Southern Sierra fish species to catch on a fly, gear & equipment, where to find fish, fishing etiquette and the proper approach to catching/releasing fish. Upon completion of the class, we hope you feel confident in approaching your fly fishing endeavors.
Since a portion of instruction is held on the river, it is important to wear sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat. Please check the local Kernville weather report during your designated clinic time and dress appropriately.
If you have additional fly fishing gear (waders, boots, rod, nippers, etc.), please bring it with you. If you do not have any equipment, we will provide it to you at no additional charge.
