This year the Kilpatrick Flyfishers will be holding introductory casting lessons on May 6, 7 and 8 at Sid Buckwold Park which is right behind Roland Michener Elementary school on Degeer Street. Take the alley on the east side of the school (not into the school parking lot) to the meeting area (marked on the map below). On the third evening, the class will be held at the Wildlife Federation pond north of Atridge. All classes will begin at 7:00, so please try to arrive early to get yourself set up and ready for the start of the class.
The classes are open to any member of the Kilpatrick Fly Fishers club. Please bring your own rod/reel/line setup if you have one, but the club will also provide rods that can be used if you don’t have one (no need to go out and buy one just for the classes if you haven’t already). Absolutely no experience is needed, but if you have some, don’t be shy to attend and get a tune-up.
We look forward to seeing you there.
The Kilpatrick Flyfishers meet the third Tuesday of each month (7:30 p.m.) except July and August (closed for fishing).
NON-MEMBERS ARE WELCOME!
Location: R.C.A.F. Association, Lynx wing, 2407 Ave. C N. Saskatoon (beside the red air plane).
Through the March, and all of April, the Kilpatrick Fly Fishers club will be offering a number of classes for club members starting out with fly fishing.
On April 1, and 8 (all Monday evenings) from 7 – 9 pm beginner fly tying classes are available.
This class takes an absolute beginner the basics of tying equipment, materials and tying techniques, by teaching you how to craft some of the most successful flies used in Saskatchewan. Each class builds on the previous week’s knowledge, so that by the end of 5 weeks you will have the skills needed to tie most flies you will find in books, or online.
