People interested in flying fishing can take “The Fundamentals of Fly Casting” on May 5 to learn about the sport.

The class, from 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m., will introduce students to angling equipment, leaders, knots and the fundamentals of fly-casting. The session combines instruction, demonstration and practice on private waters.

Instructors include Darrel Martin, certified by the International Federation of Fly-Fishers in the United State and the Advanced Professional Game Angling Instructors in England.

If you have your own equipment (rod, reel with backing, floating line and leader), you are asked to bring it. Loaner equipment also is available for free during the class.

Students should bring rain gear, a brimmed hat and protective eye wear, as well as lunch and something to drink.

The cost is $50 and includes a $30 deposit to reserve your spot. For further information on these and other classes, call Sportsman’s Warehouse in Federal Way at 253-835-4100.
