During your clinic, you'll receive expert advice on fly-casting technique, knot tying, and how to shop for gear. Most courses take place at scenic Lake Pleasant. The prime fishery, located near the epic Bradshaw mountains, has been nationally recognized as one of the top West Coast spots to hook up. The Hook Up Outfitters uses high-quality Orvis gear (rods, reels, line, leaders) in all its lessons. You can also borrow boots and waders, or bring your own.
Get this Groupon to bond with outdoorsy pals, catch something you can legally behead, or restore good aquatic karma after accidentally swallowing your pet guppy.
