Ladies Fly Fishing Clinic in South Carson April 27
The High Sierra Fly Casters and the Carson Fly Fishing Club are joining forces to sponsor a Ladies Day fly fishing clinic starting at 8 a.m. on April 27 at Fuji Park on Old Clear Creek Road (across from Costco) to introduce newcomers to fly fishing. This one-day event is open to the public, but advance registration is necessary.
Ladies Day is designed to introduce ladies to fly fishing by offering classes in the equipment used in fly fishing, the basics of casting a fly, necessary knots, fishing etiquette, and introduction to tying the ornate feather and fur imitations that are used to attract fish. Participants will also get to fish at Baily’s Pond, within walking distance of the building where the clinic will meet.
More information is available at the Nevada Department of Wildlife web site — ndow.org — where participants can register for the event.
Participation is free, but you’ll need a one-day Nevada fishing license, also available from the NDOW web site or from sporting goods and outdoor stores around the area. Equipment and sandwiches will be provided free of charge also.
This program repeats a popular clinic sponsored by the High Sierra Fly Casters a year ago, when ladies were introduced to fly fishing, casting, equipment, knots, and fly tying.
The two fishing clubs and NDOW will provide mentors to help with all aspects of the sport.
