For local fly fishermen, this California summer has been challenging at best. Low to no water means limited fish to catch. However, with increased direct flights to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, there is still a way to set your lure. For those looking to learn a few new casting skills, Snake River Sporting Club has partnered with Orvis to launch a series of fly-fishing schools that wrap up this month. It is Orvis’ first school in Wyoming and takes advantage of the club’s six miles of private access to the world-famous Snake River. The program includes a balance of classroom instruction, casting instruction, video analysis, and on-water guidance. snakeriversportingclub.com
