Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Roland's Land In Madison
If you’ve ever wanted to learn to fly fish, here is a great opportunity! First and foremost, the club has 3 sets of equipment to be borrowed. Second, for the intro part, no fishing license is required!
My plan is for there to be two cars such that after fishing at the pond on Roland’s land, one car can leave (early afternoon) to go back to Charlottesville, and the other can drive to a nearby river (probably the Rose). One catch to fishing the Rose (or any other river) is that you would then need a fishing license.
So here is a tentative itinerary:
7:45 – meet at Echols
9:00 – arrive at Pond
9:00 to 12:00 – Instruction + Fishing
12:00 – Lunch (you provide your own)
1:00 – Car A heads back to Cville
– Car B heads to Rose (or other river)
2:00 – Car A arrives in Cville
5:00 – Car B heads back to Cville
6:00 – Car B arrives in Cville
I will check out all the fishing gear, and I may share a rod of my own, so I’ll cap the number of people without equipment at 4. I’ll allow others with equipment to come along too, and it’d be awesome if you want to help teach others as well. I’ve set the limit to 5 until others with equipment (and another driver) signs up.
I will not plan to keep any fish. Should you want to keep fish, you should bring your own containers/materials for doing so.
It looks like it’ll be 70 and sunny on Sunday.
– Layered clothing
– Sunscreen, (polarized) sunglasses
– Lunch + snacks
– Fishing License if you plan to fish the river
– A ride (gas $$ + tip for drivers)
– Fishing equipment
For those of you planning to fish the river:
(1) I’ll bring the club’s 2 waders, but waders aren’t necessary
(2) If you don’t have a license, visit: http://secure01.virginiainteractive.org/horf/
(You’ll need a freshwater license [$23], but you may also consider a trout license [$23] and a national forest permit [$4])
