SFF 2017 FLY FISHING SCHOOL
By: Claude Kistler and Jodi Fitts
The SFF Fly Fishing School starts on February 16 and again includes a great program of presenters who will provide class time indoors and outdoors. The indoor sessions will be held at the Inland Northwest
Wildlife Council building on North Market Street (generally Thursday evenings), casting classes are at Franklin Park and on the water casting at a local lake (Saturdays).
This is a great opportunity to learn a lifetime skill at a great price. Members who have joined by the end of December pay only $75 for you or your spouse. The non-member fee is $125 for ages 18 and over and
$60 for ages 12 through 17. The non-member fee includes a club membership through May 2018. This allows new members to participate in club outings where they can grow their new knowledge and skills and join other fly fishing enthusiasts on the rivers and lakes in the area.
If you are interested, contact Claude Kistler by phone at (509) 747-2268.
We hope everyone is having a fun and productive fall fishing season. If you would like to introduce this great sport and hobby to other family, relatives and neighbors, please hook them up with the Annual Spokane Fly Fishers Fly Fishing School. Our classes will run for eight weeks beginning February 16th (not the same evening every week) and ending on March 31, 2017. It includes seven classroom sessions that cover a full range of topics for the beginner, casting sessions at a local park and concludes with a casting session and picnic on the water at a local lake. Most classroom sessions are held on Thursday evenings from 6:00PM to 9:00PM with the week two session on Tuesday, week three on Wednesday and the final week on a Friday. Casting sessions will be held on Saturdays.
The SFF Fly Fishing School is a great bargain. The non-member fee is $125 for 18 and older; $60 for ages 12 to 17 and includes membership (16 months) in the Spokane Fly Fishers through May, 2018. This allows new members to attend the club’s outings and interact with other members who know the waters we visit. If already a member (by the end of December 2016), the cost for you or your spouse is only $75.
Also, please be advised that we have a “Give The Gift of Spokane Fly Fisher Classes” forms at our meetings that you can use to gift our classes (Beginning Fly Tying ($30), Intermediate Fly Tying ($35), and Fly Fishing School ($75 Member and ($125) Non-Member.
