Learn the Skill of Fly Casting! Mini-workshop

June 5 @ 1:00 pm- 3:00 pm CDT

Have you always wanted to try fly casting but never knew how to start?

Join instructor Ron Miller MD as he walks you through fly casting basics. Ron has instructed fly fishing and fly casting for over 20 years and will be covering equipment, technique and safety-everything you need to know to start fly casting.

Learn about:

  • the tools every fly fisher needs
  • how to find the “best spots” on a lake or stream
  • how “match the hatch” when selecting your flies
  • how to use a fly rod

Then drive to nearby Lake Ozawindib to practice fly casting (and maybe catch a fish!)

REGISTRATION: Space is limited to 5 people. Must be 10 or older, children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Call 218-699-7251 or email constance.cox@state.mn.us to register.

Meet at the Itasca State Park Picnic Shelter located near the Lake Itasca Swim Beach for basic instruction and practice casting.

Wear comfortable clothing for the temperatures. Sunscreen, sunglasses, Insect repellant and a hat are useful. Bring snack and water if you want.

Non-residents of Minnesota will need to have a Minnesota fishing license. Participants will need a car for traveling to Lake Ozawindib.
