Over the past few months, Orvis has been posting a great new video series called “Getting Started in Fly Fishing,” from Brian Flechsig of Mad River Outfitters in Columbus, Ohio. The first 13 episodes were in-the classroom discussions about the basics about fly-fishing equipment, aquatic entomology, and flies.
Now, he finally gets out of the classroom and into the field for an extended lesson on how to fly cast.  There is a ton of information here, and you may need to pause and rewatch a couple segments to really understand Flechsig’s point, but even proficient fly casters will find this video useful.

Click on the picture below to see the video.
Alex Petti & Ray Stachelek will be tying salt water flies.  There will be other open tables to tie whatever fly you want.

After we tie flies for a bit, we will have pizza and Jeff will get the Yankee Swap going.  If you are going to participate, please bring a wrapped gift worth $15-20.
