GUIDELINE FLY FISHING “BOOT CAMPS”
Main Event: Saturday, May 14, Henning Park, Newaygo, Michigan, on the Muskegon River
This will be a showcase of Guideline Products www.guidelineflyfish.com
and Staff. This free event will give you an opportunity to test their latest products and receive instruction from their top flight staff.
All attendees will receive a discount coupon for Guideline Rods and Guideline Rod and Line purchases from the Great Lakes Fly Fishing Company, coupon valid for 30 days after the event.
During this event, through a series of small workshops, we will demonstrate both Single and Two-Handed Rods, and Common Casting faults and how to correct them. Our instructors will show you how to get the best from your Guideline Fly Lines. Peter Humphreys will tie Templedog Tube Flies on FITS Tubing.
Come and cast the New Triple Density and MMD Lines. You may have seen them in the local fly shops and read about them on forums: now’s your chance to test them! Feel the difference when both the rod and line are in balance and complement one another.
Try out the Guideline Switch Rod with the Extending Handle, designed so you can “switch” from Single Handed to Two Handed with ease. Cast the New 4 Piece Rods. Check out our new Power Taper “Ready To Go” lines in both Long and Short.
Beginners very welcome! Let one of our team show you the basics of fly fishing.
If you are thinking about, new to, or experienced in fly fishing, this is the perfect opportunity for you.
