If you ever wanted to give fly fishing a try, but didn’t know quite how to get started, the Long Island Chapter of Trout Unlimited will provide you that opportunity when it conducts Fly-Casting Clinics in March every year. All clinics usually run from 9:00AM until 12:00PM, and includes in-class discussions of terminal tackle as it relates to fly-casting, an outdoor fly casting demonstration, and hands-on instruction. Equipment will be provided (on a share basis) for the outdoors practice sessions. If you already have a fly rod and reel, there will be people to help set up your equipment between 8:30AM and 9:00AM.
Participants will be invited to attend our Open House Meeting in April at the Hicksville VFW Hall, 320 South Broadway, Hicksville, NY. Those that sign up as new members will receive a gift to get your started on fly fishing!
Our Chapter charges no fee to the participants for these clinics, however the Parks do charge the nominal car entrance fee.
