Group Fly Fishing Classes Are Available through COCC
Group fly fishing classes are available this June and July through Central Oregon Community College. The classes are taught by me and are a great opportunity to participate and learn about fly fishing in a fun group dynamic. Great for that single person. Private fly fishing classes are also available through River Borne Outfitters all season long!
