The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s Let’s Go Fishing Program, in partnership with Trout Unlimited, is offering several “Introduction to Fly Fishing” classes that are open to the public. Classes are free unless otherwise noted. Classes are open to anyone, however those 16 and under are encouraged to be accompanied by an adult. Be sure to register early to reserve your space; class size is limited. Each course includes one of the following indoor sessions, as well as a combined field day in Manchester.
Although its true that most trout feed below the surface most of the time, my favorite kind of fly fishing is dry fly fishing. This is where you present an imitation of an adult insect that has reached maturity and is floating on the surface film of the water. The excitement I receive from seeing a large trout come from below and take the fly is how I got hooked onto fly fishing in the first place.
