This organization is designed to introduce students to the sport of fly fishing and to enhance the experience of students with a fly fishing background. We welcome beginners to the sport. Among the current members, there is a wide variety of skill levels.
There will be in the classroom instruction and hands-on activities that allows members to practice and reinforce what they learn. Some topics may include Entomology, Knot Tying, Gear Selection, Fly Choice, Fly Tying, Safety, and the best ways to approach Fly Fishing a stream.
Members will have the opportunity to learn how to tie their own flies using the guidance of experienced club members and can use the flies they tie themselves to catch fish during any of the various fly fishing expeditions.
We offer on-stream instruction on various ways of fly fishing as well as techniques and safety. Fly fishing trips will be taken to local streams or to the Little Lehigh River near Allentown, PA. Local trips will take place after school. We will take a school van and return in time for the 6:00 p.m. late bus. Trips to the Little Lehigh, or other sites, will be on a Saturday, leaving the school at 8:00 a.m. and returning around 3:00 p.m.
