  1. When will I arrive and depart? You’ll want to arrive on Thursday, May 3rd late afternoon or evening. You’ll depart Sunday, May 6th in the morning or early afternoon.
  2. Do I have to be an experienced angler? Absolutely not. The point of this workshop is to teach the basics of fly-fishing and give you a solid foundation to build on.
  3. Do I need to bring my own rod and gear? Nope. We will provide everything you need.
  4. What kind of clothes will I need to bring? Spring weather in Ohio can be unpredictable. I suggest light layers because it’s usually chilly at sunrise then warms up later in the morning and afternoon. If you have waders, bring them. You’ll definitely want a pair of rubber boots. For the rest of your time here, go for comfort. We’ll be sitting around a cozy campfire in the evenings, so whatever you’re most comfortable in.
  5. Do I need to purchase a fishing license? Yes. You’ll need an Ohio fishing license (Three-day non-resident license ($19) is fine if you don’t live in Ohio). This can be purchased online or once you arrive.
  6. Am I guaranteed to catch fish? No, we’ll be fishing waters where our native trout population resides but a catch is not guaranteed.
