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 $150, you get a private 2.5-hour introductory fly-fishing excursion for two from Mountain Fly Fishers in Morley (a $300 value).
Operated by Unlimited Canmore Adventures, Mountain Fly Fishers' owner and guide John Samms leads trout-wrangling neophytes in introductory fly-fishing and casting courses on Chief Hector Lake, or other nearby lakes. Over the course of 2.5 hours, pupils ply the lake's deeper waters as John instructs them in basic fly-fishing technique and theory, such as how to cast and how to bribe nearby water spirits As pairs practice, John details the sport's mechanics and physics using interpretive scenarios and analogies to increase understanding. Sessions are tailored to participants' needs and interests, making the excursion a great holiday gift, and can teach children as young as 8 or two younger children posing as an adult in a hat and trench coat. With rods and flies provided, students may expect to cast, hook, and reel in fish such as rainbow, brown, and cutthroat trout. Fishers flourish their rods against the backdrop of the Canadian Rockies, framed by curtains of evergreen and coniferous forest.
