Orvis at Santana row will be holding free Fly Fishing 101 and 102 classes starting May 5th. We are looking for volunteers to help with the classes. Since the 101 classes are fly fishing basics you do not have to be an expert to assist. The classes are only 2 hours so block your calendar and plan to help. More details closer to the classes. Here's the details on the classes.   Volunteers will get a 40% discount on one purchase at the store If you are willing to help brand new fly fishermmen learn, contact Bob Shoberg and let him know when you can help.


Orvis’ Fly Fishing 101 & 201 classes are the best way to break into the world of fly fishing. These free, 2-hour classes will teach you the basic fundamentals of fly fishing in a fun and intimate setting. Best yet, we provide all of the equipment you need! These classes are limited to 12 students each and enrollment is first come, first serve. Contact Bob Shoberg if you are willing to help people brand new to fly fishing learn.
