We went fishing at South Fork Reservoir for the first time this weekend and within 15 minutes of trolling a Kastmaster …my fiance’s pole bent over and caught this beautiful 6.5 pound rainbow.

FREE Fly Fishing Clinic… Yes, I Said FREE

by Kristy on June 21, 2007

I completely forgot to tell you how great the Fly Fishing Class was for the girls a few months back. The class was taught by Richard Dickerson, a local Nevadan, who wrote and published a book called NEVADA Angler’s Guide — Fish Tails in The Sagebrush. It was a great class taught by an even better instructor.

So if you missed out on that class, which you had to pay for by the way… be sure to take advantage of the next Fly Fishing Class offered by the Nevada Department of Wildife. It’s a three day FREE… yes, I said FREE class that takes place in the beautiful city of Verdi.
