“Fly Casting is the essence of fly fishing.” Mel Krieger
In 2016 I began teaching fly fishing/fly casting classes at Dartmouth (FLIP program). This comprehensive, for credit and non-credit program is open to undergraduate students (credit), graduate students, Dartmouth and DHMC employees as well as the public.
Casting instruction is held outside on the Green, and indoors at Reed Hall.
The program is for six weeks of instruction (Mondays, 4:30 – 6:30 pm) plus a Sunday afternoon fishing field trip to a local river or pond. Program is offered three terms a year.
Designed for the beginner and for those with some experience, we cover casting, knot-tying, basic entomology, fly tying and fly selection, plus catching and safely releasing your catch.
This program compares with other national fly fishing programs at an attractive price. Cost: undergraduates $105; graduate students and domestic partner $125; Dartmouth and DHMC employees $175; and the public $198. For more information call 603-646-3903. Or email Hugh.S.Mellert@dartmouth.edu.
