Free Fly Fishing 101 Classes

The good folks at Orvis Dedham are offering some fly fishing lessons. The classes are free and will cover fly casting, rigging and knots. They’ll be on Saturday mornings, 9 am to 12 noon, and people who complete the class will be eligible for some discounts.

Cynthia Harkness, the store’s Fishing Manager, will be one of the instructors. She is a phenomenal angler and is passionate about getting new people on the water. See below for a fly fishing club that she started.

The Ladies Fly Fishing Club hunted stripers down in old Cape Cod today. Great way to get out there and learn! #orvisflyfishing #orvisdedham #momsfishtoo #findyourpause #anglher #nevertoolatetolearn #orvisladiesflyfishing
