Fly Tying and Fly Casting

There is something rhythmic about the cast of someone fly fishing. Gently gliding their carefully crafted lure to land so delicately on top of the water, in search of the next bite. But how do they do it? And how do they make them? Come to Lake James State Park and find out from one of the local experts. Paul Schell, owner of The Rod and Fly will be leading a beginner level program to show you just how to make the flies used for fly fishing, and how to cast them. Supplies will be provided but please call the park office to sign up for the program. Meet Paul at the West picnic shelter at 9:00 am and be prepared to celebrate the year of the fish by learning how to fly fish.
