Cabela’s offering fly fishing class
RENO — Because of increased interest, Cabela’s has added a second two-hour fly fishing class to the existing weekly class offered every Saturday.
Beginning in June and continuing at least through July and possibly in August depending on interest, the store will offer a second class starting at 2:30 p.m. to complement the current 10 a.m. offering. All Cabela’s-sponsored classes and seminars are free.
Cabela’s outfitters have gone through extensive training by the Federation of Fly Fishers to learn how to effectively teach the material which includes discussion of equipment including rods, reels, lines and tippets; teaching and practice of proper knot tying; basic entomology so the various hatches and kinds of insects present at the different times of year are all covered in the classroom portion.
The second half of the class involves expert instruction and practice of proper casting technique using Cabela’s fly rods and reels.
Besides the fly fishing classes, Cabela’s also offers a free beginning fly tying class twice a month, the first and third Monday of the month at 7 p.m., throughout the year.
Additionally, the store will offer a weekly series on responsible gun ownership every Saturday at 11 a.m. June through August and repeat one of the topics the first Monday of the month at 7 p.m. from June through August.
