Delaware Valley Fly Fishers will hold its introduction to Fly Fishing instructional class on Saturday March 26th from 10:00am – 4:00pm. This is a great day to learn the basics of fly fishing. Some of the items we go over include e flies (wet, dry, nymphs, streamers), ways to fish (wet method vs dry method), and even have casting demonstrations and instruction. Beyond that it is a great way to make friends and a good day to get out and have fun before trout season begins.
