Are you an angler? Do you have a the passion and patience to bag that trophy? Have you ever wondered why fish and insects behave the way they do? Join Walking Mountains Science Center for The Science Behind Fly Fishing on May 15th.
John Packer, owner of Fly Fishing Outfitters, in Avon CO, will share his love and appreciation for the science of fly fishing. At the presentation, he will talk about both the natural and technological elements of the sport. Water conditions, habitat, insects and the native/non-native fish species will be some of the main topics covered. Learn how clean water plays a role in the environment needed for trout to survive and thrive and get introduced to space age polymers and composites that go into the equipment. Get your hands on almost instant fishing information that will give you an edge. The evening also includes a hands-on Fly casting clinic. John has been a guide in the Vail Valley since 1996 and owner of Fly fishing Outfitters since 2009.
The Science Behind series of classes highlights useful and fun skills that have underlying scientific principles. Each class provides a hands-on, interactive component with instruction from a local subject matter expert and a Walking Mountains educator.
