Basic Fly Tying and Casting
Fly fishing is growing in popularity every day in South Texas, because of the diverse fisheries located up and down the Gulf Coast. Some of the preeminent fly fishing areas in the world are in our own back yard. Our stretch of coast offers many different angling opportunities, from super skinny flats for big redfish to offshore fly fishing for even bigger pelagic species. This introductory course will cover a variety of techniques, tools, and methods used in tying common saltwater patterns, as well as basic fly casting techniques, and local fishing tactics.
