Discover the grace and beauty of the art of fly fishing with this full-day trip on the New River!
Imagine it – the sun is glistening off the rippling New River, and you cast the perfect line from the boat with an elegant overhand motion. The only sound is the soft splashing of the river and a gentle wind blowing through the trees as you wait for the wiggle on the line signaling your first catch of the day.
Designed for the beginner, this full-day experience will have you learning the basics of fly fishing right on the river with personalized tips from your instructor. You’ll build a solid foundation with skills like reading the water and rod, reel, and line selection. Learn how to choose and tie on a fly, how to cast and retrieve, how to set a hook, and how to handle and release a fish.
Since the lesson takes place on the water, you can practice your new skills with the active smallmouth bass that thrive in the New River. By the time you’re finished, you’ll have learned the basic skills you need to enjoy the art and sport of fly fishing on your own!
