Spring Cleaning Sale Weather Update: Looks like crappy weather this Saturday. Due to forecasted high winds, we will not be teaching fly-casting. We will, however, be having a sale which will now extend into Sunday if you want to cherry-pick the nicer of the two days. If you’re signed up for a nymphing class, we will go even in the snow.
