Clinic Schedule 2017-11-04T10:31:39+00:00

Below is a list of classes and clinics available to club members. Some have scheduled dates; the others will be scheduled shortly. If you have suggestions as to other classes or clinics, be sure to contact Gordon to discuss your ideas. Look for specifics on classes and clinics here on the web site and in future Leader articles. Members should always feel free to suggest classes and clinics that would be of benefit to the general membership. It can be anything — simple and basic, or advanced and more complex. We like to do a good mix, but give preference to basic classes and clinics in order to help newer members advance their skills.And, remember—classes and clinics are great, but one of the fastest ways to flatten the learning curve is to attend fishouts.  Our Fishmasters have set up an outstanding line-up of venues on river and lake. Here’s where you can find assistance in casting, angling strategy and techniques, and stream/lake lore. So sign up — early and often.
