CO: DOW and Orvis partner on fly fishing classes

DENVER — The Colorado Division of Wildlife and ORVIS will
provide free fly fishing classes and training in May and June at
the agency’s headquarters in Denver.

“We are pleased to have ORVIS’ fly fishing specialists available
to teach at our Hunter Education building,” said Allison Kincaid.
“Any time we can partner to promote wildlife-related recreation,
it’s a great opportunity for us and the public.”

The classes, taught by ORVIS fly fishing experts, will focus on
Fly Fishing 101 and 201, as well as “Fly Fishing within an hour of
Denver,” where participants will get the scoop on great spots to
fish that are easy on the gas tank. Fly Fishing 101 will cover the
basics of fly fishing with presentation followed by a short demo on
fly casting and knot tying. Fly Fishing 201 will require completion
of the 101 class and will provide an opportunity to test out skills
at the pond behind the Hunter Education building at the Denver
Colorado Division of Wildlife headquarters.
