Mike Weddell a well known fly fishing and fly tying instructor is once again teaching Fly Fishing and everything that goes with it, here in Invercargill on the dates above.
His relaxed nature and wealth of knowledge makes this a course for anyone from people just thinking about fly fishing, to someone who has perhaps started on their own and been dabbling in fly fishing for a couple years.
The first day is theory on everything from what fish eat to techniques in present the right fly to the trout, to what fishing gear you should purchase.
We only take 16 pupils per course, and once full, people can go on the waiting list in case someone pulls out. The course is normally full by xmas, often given as a xmas present.
For more information on the course refer to the following documents;
Course costs $55 per day
