This Saturday from 9 to 2 the Montana Outdoor Science School (MOSS) is having their Watershed Festival. The event is held at the Fisheries Tech Center directly across the road from the M Trail. This year they've asked the shop (me and friends) to provide fly casting instruction and my friend Scott Thrasher will be there helping. He is a very talented angler and instructor and I'm grateful to have his help. So stop by our casting area and we'll teach you and the kids a little bit about fly casting. It's easy and fun!!
This is a very fun event with fishing in the pond for kids, bear spray demonstrations, duck races, and much more. The fishing is with conventional tackle only (fly casting in crowds is a scary thing), they can use bait, lures, or flies, and best of all they can keep two trout. The staff will clean the kiddos fish and put them in ice filled bags!! My kids and I have gone for the last several years and they have a blast.
The shop is happy to have Woody Linihan providing fly tying, fishing, and casting instruction. We our still fine tuning our instruction for fishing and casting classes but the Wednesday night tying classes are all set and we have openings. These classes run from 6 to 8 pm and the shop provides everything you need. Give us a call to sign up or find out more about the class.
Thanks again! Think Fish!
