Fish may not fly outside of Seattle's Pike Place Market, but for a solid portion of Idaho residents and visitors, fly fishing is the cat's meow.
If you've ever been intrigued by the intricacies of the sport—the cool casts, rad rods and gnarly knots—you can get a crash course courtesy of the folks of the Gem State Fly Fishers, a club dedicated to preserving the sport in the Treasure Valley.
For $25, or $20 if you're a Nampa Recreation Center member, GSFF representatives will teach you about the different kinds of rods, how to tie basic knots, what kind of line to use, and give you a whole lot more info about the sport.
Bring your own fly rod if you have one, or some will be available during the class. The first part of this intro course takes place today from 6:30-8:30 p.m., and continues at the same time Wednesday, April 25, at the Nampa Recreation Center.
Can't swing it today? The course will be taught again Wednesday, May 1-Thursday, May 2. Register at the Nampa Parks and Recreation website.
