Audubon offering fly fishing workshop

By Staff | Mar 21, 2014

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will sponsor an “introduction to Fly Fishing” workshop at Jefferson County’s Wildwood Middle School on Saturday, Mar. 22. The workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 noon.

It will be taught by local Master Naturalists Lou Scavnicky and Clark Dixon and fly fishermen from the Creek Side Anglers. It will be aimed at anyone interested in learning more about fly fishing; no prior experience is needed.

Participants will get a basic introduction to the history and fundamentals of the sport, and with hands-on instruction in tying flies and casting.

All the necessary equipment will be provided to everyone who enrolls. Those who have their own equipment are welcome to bring it.

Everyone is welcome but enrollment will be limited and pre-registration and a fee will be required.

Easy pre-registration is available on the PVAS website at www.potomacaudubon.org. The fee will be $20 for PVAS members and the general public and $15 for members and students of the Society’s Potomac Valley Master Naturalist Program.

The workshop will include both indoor and outdoor portions, so participants should dress accordingly.

The workshop is part of Potomac Valley Audubon’s “Natural History Workshop” series, which is intended to provide brief but intensive instruction in natural history topics of interest.

Wildwood Middle School is located just opposite Jefferson High School at 1209 Shenandoah Junction Road, in Shenandoah Junction.
