Saltwater Edge Education Programs – ‘Tis the Season to Learn
Learning a new activity that may well turn into a lifetime passion is about the best gift anyone could receive. If you have always wanted to build rod, tie a fly, learn to cast a fly then the Saltwater Edge Education Program is for you. We offer classes throughout the year and here are the programs for 2016.
Fly Tying – We offer classes from “introduction’ to “advanced”. Participating in the full fly tying curriculum will create a base of understanding and technique that will enable you to tie most any saltwater fly. We also, on occasion, have Guide Fly Classes focused on a particular style of tying of fishing situation. These classes include a discussion of appropriate techniques and tactics. Learn more about the Saltwater Edge Fly Tying Programs here.
Rod Building – We are happy to partner with Ted Zack of the Aquidneck Island Rod Builders to host our Rod Building classes. Ted is an amazing builder and a patient teacher. In the introductory class, all students build a similar 7 foot spin rod (you choose the action) to ensure all the fundamental techniques are covered. The class meets on a Saturday for the hands-on instruction, and then again about ten days
later for feedback and rework. After Ted’s class, you will be capable of building a wide variety of fishing rods. Click here for details.
