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.*

Winston-Salem is heaven for the avid outdoorsman. We have both lakes and rivers, allowing for a variety of daytime trips, from paddling the frisky Dan River to fishing right in town at Salem Lake.  Our incredible staff members cite Hanging Rock State Park as one of their favorite places in the country for climbing and exploring. There are seven miles of natural trail way around Salem Lake, and Pilot Mountain and the Sauratown Trail are great options if you have a bit more time.

We here at Great Outdoor Provision Co. want you to take advantage of everything Winston-Salem has to offer – even the things you don’t know about yet! Our manager, Darren Schwartz, and his staff have worn paths in many of the trails around Winston-Salem, from the most popular to the obscure, can’t-even-find-it-on-the-Internet places. We don’t mean for these best-kept secrets to stay secret, though! At our store, we’re more than happy to share all of the knowledge we’ve gathered with you.

Throughout our adventures, we have spent time testing several of the products in our store. You may not realize that the backpack that feels great when you wear it for five minutes in the store will rub your sides raw after eight hours on the trail. That’s where we come in. We’ll tell you what has worked for us and what hasn’t, so you can make an educated decision about your outdoor purchases. Come check out our store at the Thruway Shopping Center – we can’t wait to see you!
