Free Beginner Fly Tying Class: NRWA Program
Thu, 10/24/2019 - 2:42pm Heraldgroton
The Nashua River Watershed Association (NRWA) is offering a free two-part “Beginner Fly Tying” class running two consecutive Tuesdays in November. This two-session class is intended for beginners only. The minimum age is 15, youth must be accompanied by an adult. The first session of the class will take place on Tuesday, November 12, and the second session on Tuesday, November 19. Both class sessions will run from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the NRWA’s River Resource Center, 592 Main Street (Rt. 119) in Groton. The sessions will be led by MassWildlife’s Angler Education Program staff. During this hands-on two- session class, you’ll learn the basic skills of tying your own flies. All tools and tying materials provided.
One of the results of protecting the water quality in our local streams is that healthy streams provide healthy habitat for fish populations. The Nashua River watershed is fortunate to have several important cold-water fisheries that are home to populations of trout. These streams offer recreationalists the opportunity for fly fishing, and the Nashua River Watershed Association (NRWA) enjoys partnering with anglers to protect these waterways.
Pre-registration is required; space is limited. Registrants should be available to attend both sessions of the class. This class is free and open to the public, funded in part by a grant from the Greater Lowell Community Foun- dation. To pre-register, please contact Kathryn Nelson, KathrynN@NashuaRiverWatershed. org. (preferred) or by calling (978) 448-0299. The Nashua River Watershed Association is an environmental non-profit organization that provides water and land protection and environmental education programs in 32 watershed communities.
