Learn the fine art of fly fishing
The weather has been amazing the past couple of days, and the forecast looks promising through most of the weekend.
Not being a fisherwoman, I am not sure if this is good fishing weather," but it seems to me that a blue sky, mild temps and a sun that is minding its manners (as opposed to its typical summer behavior) fit the bill.
The folks in the Bridgeland master-planned community must think so too, as they are hosting a Beginner Fly Fishing" class this Sunday March 7 from 9 10:30 a.m. at Oak Meadow Park, a 30-acre park located off North Bridgeland Lake Parkway in Cypress. The park has a floating dock on stocked Cypress Lake for catch and release fishing.
The class will include hands-on casting instruction on both a group and individual basis; how to present an artificial fly to trout, bass and saltwater species; and how to hook and land a fish. Also on the agenda are how to make basic fishing knots and how to assemble a fly-fishing outfit.
Sounds like a catch (I am sorry I could not resist)!
The cost for the class is $35 for residents and $40 for non-residents. The class is for individuals ages 10 and up, and children under 16 must be accompanied by a parent at all times.
Fly rod equipment will be provided, but you are advised to dress comfortably and wear a cap and sunglasses. The sun may not be sweltering, but that doesn't mean it can't do some damage.
