Like fishing for compliments, fishing for fish requires the right bait, the right line, and a friend who is willing to exaggerate. Reel it in with today's Groupon: for $82, you get a three-hour fly-fishing lesson at Bob White Springs in Only (a $165 value).
Tucked away one hour west of Nashville, Bob White Springs beckons fishers of all levels to its prolific, tree-surrounded waters for in-depth fly-fishing lessons. Students spend half the lesson time gleaning knowledgeable tidbits on casting mechanics, the basics of the equipment, and learning how to tie a knot that trout will recognize from witnessing boy-scout tutorials. The lesson's second half positions fledgling fisherpeople directly in the water to practice their new skills, where they will cast for blue sky trout, golden rainbow trout, and an ingénue trout to star in the sequel to The Incredible Hulk Goes Fishing. Students do not need a fishing license, and all equipment is provided.
