All men are invited to a morning of fly fishing instruction at Dominican Center at Marywood.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 11 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. All men are invited to Dominican Center at Marywood for a morning of good times, fellowship, expert fly fishing advice with hands-on instruction and a hearty cookout. Glen Blackwood of Great Lakes Fly Fishing Company will be our fishing guide, leading an introduction to fly fishing with a focus on fly casting; Brian Plachta will be our spiritual guide. 

Whether you are a beginner or an expert, you are sure to pick up some great tips on how to fine tune your fishing techniques. You'll be ready to tackle any of Michigan's waterways. This is an opportunity for older men, younger men (and those in between), to share wisdom and enjoy the experience of mentoring each other.

Who: All men, all faiths and all levels of expertise are welcome. Space is limited, so register early.

Where: Dominican Center at Marywood (on the banks of the Dominissippi River), 2025 Fulton Street East, Grand Rapids, MI 49503

Cost: $40.00 includes food, beverages and the use of fishing gear provided by Great Lakes Fly Fishing Company.

You don't have to travel to Montana or Colorado to enjoy fly fishing because it's not all about location. It's about the execution of the cast- the art of the sport, the art of life. You'll leave with confidence in your cast and a heightened appreciation of fly fishing. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, you will enjoy this fun morning and make some new friends. And, of course, there's food!
