LOCALLY RELEVANT CLINICS
Our goal is to help your entire family or crew become more successful, knowledgeable, and capable anglers. Plus we will all have a great time doing it! Learn, cast, eat, drink, and laugh with us.
There is a line-up of short, but highly focused clinics that will include both "where to" and "how to" discussions on fishing all of the popular species found within a reasonable drive of Red's Fly Shop.
