What's Included

This 4-week course will sharpen your fishing knowledge and skills regardless of your experience level. In many ways, the secret to fishing is knowing where the fish are. To predict this, the saltwater fisherman must have knowledge of the ocean, fish biology and weather – along with a bit of luck. We'll learn about the most common fish species encountered in SWFL, how to read the water, how tides work, and how they affect fishing. Outside the classroom, we will introduce saltwater fly-fishing, and teach casting, fly-tying, knots and techniques. On the last meeting, we will arrange a fishing outing to apply all of our new-found knowledge. Fishing from a Biological Perspective is open to adults ages 18 and up. Children ages 15 and up may register with an adult who is 18 or older. This program is a series of 4 classes that meet each Friday from 1:00 - 4:00 PM. Please note that class will not meet on February 19th.
