The Folk Collaborative (Orchard) | Cost $40

“In my family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing.” -Mclean

Fly fishing has been a source of food, art, and solitude since it’s inception. We invite y’all to join Rob as he passes on his lifelong knowledge about this craft. Rob has fished oceans, creeks, and rivers across the globe, but fell in love with the mountains of southern Appalachia. You will need to bring nothing but yourself, and a pair of shoes that are good for being outside. Today you will hopefully leave with the basic skills in different casting techniques, a rundown on what equipment is essential and what is just fun to have, and the spark of passion for this time honored tradition. This class will be held outdoors.
