Do you know someone that wants to learn to fly fish? A spouse, friend, girlfriend, neighbor, or work colleague. Deep Creek Fly Fishers does a class every year for people interested in learning to fly fish. This class is open to everyone, young or old, man, or woman. Information is below.

We’ll talk about fly rods and the difference in fly rods and which rod to buy. What line weight is best for what type of fishing. The differences in click & pawl and drag reels. A little bit on entomology, reading a stream or lake, etiquette on the stream, and flies to use where. We also talk about safety tips while fly fishing. We will also do some casting to show the difference in fly casting and bait casting.

We are going to have our Intro to Fly Fishing class on June 25th, 2022 at the Izzac Walton building (Deep Creek Fly Fishers Clubhouse). The Class is from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm and is FREE. We provide lunch, so it is mandatory for the people attending to sign up online on our website: deepcreekflyfishers.org. Like I always say, if five people sign up online and twelve people show up seven people will be hungry at lunch time. The class is limited to fourteen people. We will have one person at each end of an eight feet table. We only have room for seven tables in the clubhouse. We’ll provide notebooks to take notes but they need to bring something to write with.

Born and raised in Ohio, I moved to Las Vegas in 1994 to work as a saxophonist in the showrooms on the strip.  With the rivers and streams of Utah's southwest only a short drive away, the opportunities to escape the desert went from weekend trips to weeklong adventures, then eventually, a move to Cedar City.  My favorite locations on the Sevier and Beaver rivers are nearby as well as several reservoirs.  Our goal is to make anglers feel like we are showing our friends our favorite places to fish.

“Techniques for fishing Southern Utah”

The presentation will cover techniques we use to target fish in our specific area.  Small rivers and streams (Sevier and Beaver) and the willows that surround them, provide presentation challenges, but also holding places for fish.  We will cover our methods of dealing with seasonal flows, variations in water color, and water temperature.
