WKU Continuing Education will offer a Fly Casting Workshop on April 14 for anyone interested in learning about the essential fly fishing equipment and casts. The one-day workshop will teach participants how to properly identify and assemble fly fishing equipment and demonstrate primary fly casting techniques.
Dr. Raymond Poff, an associate professor in the WKU Department of Kinesiology, Recreation and Sport, will lead the workshop. Poff is a skilled outdoorsman with extensive experience in fly fishing, whitewater rafting and kayaking instruction. He has fly fished within the United States and in New Zealand, and he teaches fly fishing courses at WKU during Summer Sessions.
WKU Continuing Education Director Sharon Woodward said that the workshop is a unique opportunity. “Many people like the idea of fly fishing, but they don’t know how to do it,” said Woodward. “This workshop offers hands-on instruction, providing all the tools they need to get started.”
The fly casting workshop takes place April 14 from noon-5 p.m. Location to be determined. Registration ends April 2. The workshop fee is $149 and includes use of fly fishing rods. For additional details, go to http://www.wku.edu/ce/flyfishing.
