Fly Fishing Class | Winston-Salem - Fall 2019 @ Private Pond in Germanton, NC

Description

The Great Outdoor Provision Co. Fly Fishing Class is a very comprehensive one day course with two instructors for six to eight students.

We’ve packed a lot of information into an eight hour day, including: casting, knots, equipment, fishing strategies and fly selection, for cold water, warm water and saltwater species.
Beginners can expect to learn the skills that will allow them to catch fish on their own, and intermediate level fly fishers can advance their casting skills and fill in some holes in their technical knowledge.

We provide all equipment, including a textbook, a few flies, as well as lunch and drinks. Just bring your sense of humor, a willingness to have fun and learn, but register early.

*Location of the Class will be disclosed after registration.*

Greensboro has everything: paddling and fishing at Lake Brandt or the Haw River, hiking and trail running at the Piedmont Environmental Center or the Watershed Lakes trails, and bike trails with majestic views at Hanging Rock State Park and Uwharrie National Forest. Whatever your pleasure is, the Great Outdoor Provision Co. will make sure that you have everything you need to meet the trail (or river) head on. From the big purchases, like a kayak, to the smallest, like a carabiner, Great Outdoor Provision Co. has you covered.

We don’t just carry all of the products you’ll need for your outdoor adventures. Our manager, Rob Arends, and his staff offers something equally, if not more important: knowledge and education about the great outdoors. We spend our off days using the same equipment we sell, so we can tell you what to expect where you’re going, and what things you do or don’t need.

Our motto – explore global, shop local – epitomizes the way we do our business. We want to open the world to exploration, and it starts with our community. Stop by our store, and let us show you what Greensboro has to offer. You might be surprised at the wilderness right outside our back door.
