The “Beginner” package lasts 9 hours, in two separate sessions.
The first 5 sessions last one hour each, on an open field, to learn :
– The knowledge of the equipment, the different types of rods and reels and different types of fly fishing lines
– The technique of fly casting, backhand casting, roll cast, and parachute cast.
– The making of knots and a leader
– The different imitations: dry flies, nymphs, wet flies, streamers and when to use which
Each session of one hour is spaced 3 to 5 days apart to allow you to practice, at home, the casting techniques with the equipment on loan, rod, reel, and line.
These five sessions conclude with a 4-hour session at the riverside to apply the knowledge you have acquired in the field and catch your first fish with a fly rod.
