An Alaskan fly fishing guide will teach a pair of classes at the Redmond Senior Center, Room 107, 8703 160th Ave. N.E. There will also be stream field trips, which will feature fly casting lessons.

The first class – Introduction to Fly Fishing – will be a 10-week course held at 6:30 p.m. every Wednesday starting on March 22 and running through May 25. Students will learn entomology, habitat, knots, casting techniques, basic fly tying and stream reading.

The second class – Basic Fly Tying – will be a nine-week course held at 6:30 p.m. every Monday starting on March 27 and running through May 22. Students will learn the basics of fly tying, the types of materials used and learn to tie more than 10 different fly patterns as they develop their understanding of the techniques used to tie dry flies, nymphs, attractors, streamers, emergers and terrestrials.

For more information, or to sign up for the classes, contact Redmond Parks and Recreation at (425) 556-2314.
