ODFW Outdoors will host an adult fly fishing workshop at LaVerne County Park on the North Fork of the Coquille River on Saturday, June 8.
The workshop, which will run from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., is designed for new and beginning fly fishers and will include sessions on equipment, casting, aquatic insects and reading the water.
According to Gary Vonderohe, ODFW fish biologist, participants in previous workshops have included complete novices, as well as who have tried fly fishing in the past but wanted a refresher course.
“A lot of fly fishers are self-taught, and at some point they like to check in to make sure they are doing things right,” he said.
The class costs $42 and includes use of all necessary equipment, instruction/materials and lunch.
Go to the ODFW Web site for registration information, or call Gary Vonderohe at 541-888-5515 for more information.
