Fly Fishing Workshop
Introduction to Fly Fishing with Tim Woodard
Location: Board Room # 2
Cost: $40 – Saturday Morning April 4th 9 am – 12:00 pm
For those of you who are new to the sport of fly fishing this is the workshop for you. This workshop is a 3-hour introductory crash course to the sport of fly fishing. Tim will cover how to select your first fly fishing outfit, show you some basic fly fishing knots, provide some information on the insects (entomology) that trout love to eat, and show you some flies to imitate them. In addition to these basics to get you started, Tim will also suggest some local areas around Idaho Falls to try out your new skills. As an added bonus, students who take this class will automatically be signed for a one year membership for the Snake River Cutthroats fly fishing club. You will receive the club newsletter during the winter month and have access to the outings, dinners and picnics that the club runs during the year. Being in the club also brings you in contact with many of the finest fly fishers in southeast Idaho.
During the summers Tim spends his days on the river guiding for the South Fork Lodge. He spent six years working at Jimmy’s All Seasons Angler, sharing his knowledge with shop patrons, before taking employment with Zion’s Bank. Tim also teaches fly fishing and fly tying locally for Idaho State University. Along with his expertise on the river and lake, Tim is also a highly accomplished fly tier and is featured in Bruce Staples latest book, Flies for the Greater Yellowstone Area. Please join Tim and learn about the art of fly fishing.
