Join Tom Battista, Todd Burns, Eric Baird Will Daskal, and other expert members of our local Brodhead Chapter of Trout Unlimited for a highly informative program that will introduce you to the bucolic, angling sport of fly fishing! Equipment selection, casting techniques, reading the water, effective fly fishing strategy, basic fly tying, understanding essential trout stream entomology, as well as actual local fly-fishing hotspots, will all be covered & made easy as “ABC” for you!

The nominal admission fee is a small donation to the KCEEC as follows: $8/Non-Members and $5/KCEEC Members and Children under 12.
