CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The Clarksville Parks & Recreation Department and the National Fishing in Schools Program will offer a fly fishing class next month in the Crow Community Center.

The National Fishing in Schools Program will teach participants basic fly-fishing and casting skills. The program will also educate participants about fish, insects, aquatic environments, resource stewardship and conservation.

The program will attempt to make learning the skills of fly-fishing fun and easy for all ages. The class will use the unique CasTarget system, which uses photorealistic targets to help improve casting accuracy and consistency. This training system helps participants better visualize the target, and gain a better sense of fly-fishing.

The fly-fishing class is open to interested students from grades 6-12. The Program will be hosted at the Crow Community Center beginning March 20 through April 10 on Thursdays from 4-5pm.

The cost of the class is $10 per person, along with a $5 Center ID. There are only 10 spaces available. Sign up now at the Clarksville Parks and Rec website here.

More information is available at any of the Clarksville Community Centers or at the main office downtown.
