Free Fly Fishing Course in CT.

Orvis is offering free introductory fly fishing courses on Saturday, July 24 and 31 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at its 380 West Main Street (Route 44) Avon, CT location.

The course will include fly casting, knot tying, and equipment review. Each  students will receive a free $15 Orvis gift card and a free Trout Unlimited membership.

There are no fee but, pre-registration is required. Call 860-678-7900 to reserve your space or for more information.

The Farmington River (a tailwater) is only a stones through away, and the area offers many B&B's outdoor activities.  Personally I go up there every summer to stay at a friends house to fish, play some golf and escape the heat.  From my home it's only a 3 hour drive.  If you need a place to stay while up their I can recommend Paul Rossman B&B the Pine Brook B&B Paul is a world class fly tier,  guide, fellow artist and friend.

I came across this at  The Hartford Courant.
