Learn How to Fly Fish at Free Clinic

Clinic happens Sept. 30

Price -- Are you looking for a new angle on fishing?

If you’re a fly fishing beginner—or you’ve never tried it before—the Division of Wildlife Resources is holding a free clinic you won’t want to miss.

The DWR will offer an introduction to fly fishing clinic on Sept. 30 at the agency’s Southeastern Region office. The office is at 319 N. Carbonville Rd. in Price. The clinic begins at 8:30 a.m.

“Fly fishing is a fun and versatile method of catching fish that often looks harder than it really is,” says Walt Maldonado, DWR wildlife recreation specialist in southeastern Utah. “If you’re looking for a new way to enjoy wildlife, this clinic is for you.”

Maldonado says the clinic will begin with classroom instruction and a practice session. “Then,” he says, “we’ll head to a nearby community fishery where you can try your hand at catching fish. We’ll have plenty of fly fishing rods, reels and tackle on hand for you to use.”

Local experts will teach you the basics of catching fish on flies in a variety of settings. The following are among the topics they’ll cover:

· The gear you need

· Choosing flies that work well

· Fly fishing on lakes

· Fly fishing on rivers and streams

· Casting

· Lure presentation
