Fishing is the ultimate prank because the fish think they are getting food and then are immediately yanked into a world they cannot understand. Bait and switch with this Groupon.

Steve Ellis and Ken Lindsay have traveled far and wide to hone their fly-fishing skills—they bring knowledge gained in Belize, New Zealand, Argentina, Chile, and several US states to their Van Nuys fly-fishing shop, Fishermen’s Spot. For the past four decades, the shop has stocked high-quality fishing gear from makers such as Sage, Simms, Winston, and Abel, as well as vintage equipment such as bamboo rods and ancient flies that still haven't evolved wings. To complement these wares, the shop offers classes that help students master fly-fishing basics, such as casting, selecting tackle and flies, and tying knots.
“Excellent place to learn to cast and what you need to be successful fly fisherman or women. ”
“Great staff! ”
“Learning was fun despite it being in a parking lot. But you have to learn somewhere. I had fun.”
