The hatch of the blue wing olive often signifies the beginning of the fly fishing season in Central Pennsylvania. For those who haven't mastered the entomology involved with this sport or the exact art of casting a line, the Lebanon Campus of HACC is offering an introductory fly fishing course.

Introductory Fly Fishing for Beginners will be offered as a two-day course Saturday and Sunday, April 9-10, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Lehigh Valley Fly Fishing School in Coopersburg, Pa. Cost is $175.

This all-inclusive course offers an introduction to fly fishing including equipment selection, knot tying, the basics of entomology, fly selection, reading water and fly fishing techniques for stream-bred trout.

The overall goal of the course is to enable the beginner to learn the basic skills in a structured environment, both in the classroom and at the school's fully stocked trout pond.

Instructors Bob Saks and Bob Signorello have more than 80 years of combined fly fishing experience locally and throughout the U.S.
