ITFF Graduation Outing

NOTICE:  ITFF GRADUATION OUTING WAS POSTPONED TO MAY 5-7 DUE TO HEAVY WATER CONDITIONS. PLEASE CHECK IN REGULARLY TO CONFIRM THE DATES BASED ON EXPECTED HEAVY SNOW RUNOFF
Saturday Nite Dinner has been moved to Astorga's Mexican Restaurant (2206 N Sierra Hwy) at the junction of See Vee Ln and 395 near the Sierra Trout Magnet Fly Shop.  6:30PM  Order from the menu. (no prime rib - sorry.  Sign ups were so delayed coming in, we released the Country Club so they could take another group.)

The ITFF Graduation Outing is designed to help students from the recent Introduction to Fly Fishing course to start fly fishing on our fine trout streams. Students will be matched up with instructor/guides for on the water experience. 

We headquarter in Bishop, CA. Most participants drive up on Thursday and are ready to fish on Friday morning. Both students and instructors are responsible for their own accommodations and food. There is a group dinner planned for Saturday evening where we tell tall tales of great piscatorial feats and generally enjoy the company of fellow fly fishers.

Friday and Saturday Morning: students and instructors meet at 9:00 AM behind BBQ Bill's (1/2 block south of Line on Main) to match up for the morning fishing.
