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 $20, you get a one-hour fly-fishing lesson for two from Ohio Steelhead Drifters in Westlake.
Ohio Steelhead Drifters’ guides, Owen Murphy and Ryan Buddie, have hunted cold-blooded quarry all across the country, and they share their intense passion for fly-fishing and appreciation of the outdoors with both beginners and experienced anglers during hands-on lessons. Fishing duos head out to whatever spot along Northeast Ohio's Steelhead Alley that their guides deem most promising that day to undertake an hour of casting instruction. Under the direction of their licensed and insured guide, students flick and fling their lines out into the water, learning to control their wrists with the precision of police artists at stations that can only afford an Etch A Sketch. Fisherpeople can practice using provided fishing rods, or they can lure in gullible fish with their personal equipment.
Ohio Steelhead Drifters
The fishing guides at Ohio Steelhead Drifters care about more than the number of fish their clients catch—although they can certainly maximize that. They know the best fishing spots in northeast Ohio, but they also have other priorities, such as safety, education, and technique. That's why, when they're not leading fishing or rafting trips, they teach fly fishers proper casting technique during one-hour seminars at their home base in Ohio's Steelhead Alley.
