Fly Fishing School at Habersham Mill
Welcome to the Habersham Mill Fly Fishing School - an intensive 2-day course designed for novice and intermediate anglers. The school combines classroom instruction, casting practice and actual fishing time. This is the best place to learn how to enjoy the sport. If you have never held a fly rod, we'll give you a solid foundation in the basics and give you the opportunity to put them into practice. If you have some experience, we'll help you take your skills to the next level. Unlike other fly fishing schools, ours is designed to let you learn-by-doing. Of course it helps that our school is located literally on the banks of the beautiful Soque River. Only a small fraction of the class is actually in the classroom - most of our time is on the water learning by experience. A high teacher-to-student assures plenty of help, but we'll also allow you time to self-experience. Visit our website for more information on the school, and the curriculum. Habersham Mills is a unique new mixed-use community that combines the primal natural beauty of northeast Georgia with the old timber and brick of the pre-civil war factory and adds a modern eco-friendly sustainable design. Now in its early stages, Habersham Mills will offer a combination of mixed residential, retail and studio space, along with natural common spaces. Lodging is available on-site - see details and open dates... Total cost for the school is $450 and includes all equipment, a school manual, and lunch on Saturday and Sunday. Reserve your space now with a $95 deposit. We look forward to getting on the water with you! FAQs Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? There is no minimun age requirement, but the school is not suitable for most children under 12 (and some older than that!). If your youngster is not already VERY interested in fishing with an excellent attention span, we suggest you wait to get him started. ANY STUDENT UNDER 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. What can I bring into the event? You will need weather appropriate clothing, and sun protection. We strongly suggest polarized sunglasses and a hat. We furnish all fishing equipment along with waders and boots, but you may bring your if you have it. Do I need a car? Yes, you will need transportation to and from Habersham on Saturday (unless you stay on-site). On Sunday we will probably fish on a section of private river at Unicoi Outfitters near Helen (about 15 minutes away) - you will need transportation to and from there. There is no available public transportation in the area. Rental cars are available nearby in Clarkesville and Helen. How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
