A welcome sight for the 2014 season after a brutal winter. The bite is on at the Kankakee River. The water is still high, but productive!
Anglers, we are going back to college and you can join me this summer at Moraine Valley College in Palos Hills, IL.
Title: Fly Fishing: Casting & Strategy
Description: Learn the basics of casting a fly rod and effective strategies to catch fish. Fly rod, reels and line are provided. Fly fishing increases attention span, concentration, motor skills, and the appreciation in the beauty of natural ecosystems. A National Park ethic of "leaving only footprints" and conservation etiquette also are discussed.
Start Date: June 7, 2014
