Warm Water Fly Fishing

In this course, you will learn how to target panfish, largemouth and smallmouth bass, musky, and carp with a fly rod. Why fly fish in warm water? Pound for pound, warm water game fish are some of the hardest fighting fish that swim! Warm water game fish are usually found close to home. And finally, fly fishing for warm water species can extend your fishing season well into the summer months - after the trout streams have warmed up. All aspects of warm water fly fishing will be covered, including: tackle, fly selection, retrieval techniques, casting, knots, habitat, and catch and release. The last session will be "on the water" at a private fly fishing only bass and panfish lake with your instructors.
