Art of Fly Casting Clinics

The Art of Fly Casting Clinic is an introduction to fly casting, beginning with a brief overview of the equipment needed to get you started. We then progress into teaching some of the basic fly casting techniques used by even the most avid angler. The group will then move to a stocked pond to catch the big one once everyone is feeling confident with his/her casting ability.

Casting clinics take place near the stocked pond beside the main driveway to the Omni Mount Washington Hotel. Guests will meet at the Activities Concierge Desk, located in the Great Hall of the Omni Mount Washington Hotel, 10 minutes prior to the lesson to pick up their equipment and meet their instructor. Fly casting clinics are restricted to ages 13 and up.
