Join us for a morning of fly tying with instruction at the Angler's Den in Pawling NY. We will all sit around the table in this classic, old world fly shop as we learn how to tie 3 different flies All materials and tools are included. We'll even get a packet of materials to take home! Beginners & experienced tiers welcome! Afterwards we'll head out to the Housatonic River to test them out! Guided fishing option available.
We return to St. Hubert's Club in Marlboro NY for a day of eating, shooting and fishing! St. Hubert's is set in a beautiful old apple orchard and the sporting clays course wanders among the trees. The club has several casting ponds and has worked hard to improve the fishing; renovating the ponds and stocking them. We'll meet at 10 am for coffee and a safety briefing before splitting into two groups. One group will shoot the course (instruction from Clay's Academy Lead Shooting Instructor Tom Fiumarello and guns available) while the second group casts. We'll re-group midway for Gazpacho and then swap before ending the day with a sit-down lunch in the rustic lodge! This event is always popular, so please come join us!!
Our Spring School & Warm Up weekend is a classic! We pamper and instruct throughout our all inclusive (food and lodging included) weekend with a hearty helping of laughter and camaraderie. We meet for a gourmet dinner Friday night, overnight lodging, and spend a full day Saturday covering all the basics of fly fishing; including theory, equipment, knots, flies, casting, hooking, landing, and releasing fish in order to get you ready to head out to the water on your own. More advanced anglers are encouraged to join us to improve their skills and tweak their technique on dry land before heading out to local waters for on water instruction. We eat well, laugh often, and create successful anglers in a supportive, instructive environment. Let's start this season together!!
