LEARN TO FLY FISH
If you have ever wanted to learn to fly fish, here is your chance - SPFF’s classes will take you step by step from your first cast to landing a beautiful trout on the Owens River. The classroom sessions at the ONE GENERATION CENTER cover everything from knot tying to choosing the correct flies. At the nearby pond in Reseda Park you will learn the essential casts to prepare you to fish in rivers, lakes and streams. SPFF supplies loaner rods and reels to get you started. The classes are run by certified instructors and experienced Club members.
