Early attempts at fly-fishing involved corralling resistant pigeons and training them to aerially kidnap migrating salmon after lulling them into a false sense of security by cooing Patsy Cline songs. Wade into a flightless fly-fishing experience with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a two-hour guided fly-fishing trip, including instruction for two people, with Rob Snowhite, Fly-Fishing Consultant, LLC at your choice of location.
Rob Snowhite is a professional fly-fishing consultant devoted to training and tutoring aspiring anglers. His multi-tiered background in consulting, education, fly-fishing, biological science, and writing The New Adventures of Old Christine fan-fiction gives him a trained vantage point from which to approach his craft. During your two-hour guided trip, you and a friend, loved one, or sentient pet cat get to explore the DC area's waterways while walking in, wading, or canoe floating over your choice of lake, river, pond, or stream. Rob will carefully explain both the mechanical and theoretical aspects of fly-fishing while emphasizing only the catch-and-release method of fishing, as well as sustainable ways of exploring the water. Learn the basics of casting on grass or on water, knot tying, rods, reels, flies, entomology, hydrology, and more. All equipment is provided for the trip, as well as drink and snack rewards for staying on top of your fish-based fly game (lunch is optional and an additional $10 per person).
