Fly-fishing is like raising children: both require patience, superior breath-holding skills, and a pocket full of worms to entice cooperation. Catch your next meal with today's Groupon to Nomad Anglers. Choose between the following options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of fishing gear, accessories, and apparel.
- For $20, you get a one-day fly-fishing class (a $60 value).
The fishing aficionados at Nomad Anglers enlighten lure-lovers with the know-how for reeling in the big catch while providing the necessary gear, from vest and chest packs to fly rods to helpful DVDs. Prepare for a leisurely day of freshwater casting with a floating Clearwater fly line ($29), or shelter noggins from the sun's malevolent rays with a Sunshield hat ($29.95). An Orvis lightweight floating fly box ($11.95) saves fishers from the hassle of dangling lures from rows of underarm piercings.
The fly-fishing class (a $60 value) begins at the shop with an overview from one of Nomad Anglers' hook-line-and-sinker experts, who'll teach how to tie effective knots, as well as basic entomology and fly selection. Afterwards, class-takers will mosey over to the pond across the street to practice water casting and placing messages on the lure that say "free samples—please take one!"
As conveyed through its name, Nomad Anglers stocks gear, equipment, and apparel for outdoors adventures both near and far. With a history that stretches back to 1989, the business has prepared anglers for all types of trips, and today, features such major brands as Orvis, Patagonia, and Simms. In addition to its wealth of products, Nomad also helps customers reel in education with fly-fishing classes, free seminars, and local fishing reports.
