A fly tying workshop will be held Tuesday, Feb. 7, and Thursday, Feb. 9, from 6-9 p.m. at Gander Mountain. The workshop offers an extensive fly tying training for those interested in learning more about fly tying tools, techniques, fly patterns and more.
Dr. Raymond Poff from the WKU Department of Kinesiology, Recreation and Sport will provide all workshop instruction. This July, Poff will also lead “Fly Fishing Montana,” a non-credit enrichment trip through WKU Study Away’s Travel America program. The trip will provide a four-night or five-night expedition to Missoula, Mont., where Norman Maclean’s “A River Runs Through It and Other Stories” comes to life. Those interested in the fly fishing trip are encouraged to participate in one or more of the workshops.
All skill levels and ages are welcome. Registration fee for the two-night workshop is $169 and includes a fly tying kit, which is a $70 -$100 retail value. Pre-registration is available through Monday, Feb. 6, by calling 270-745-1912.
A fly casting workshop will also be offered April 14. Workshops provide skills necessary for any fly fishing excursion and are available through a partnership between WKU Study Away, WKU Continuing Education and Gander Mountain. Registration fees and information for all workshops are available at http://www.wku.edu/ce/flyfishing.
