Freeport, Maine (Vocus/PRWEB ) February 27, 2008 --The L.L.Bean Outdoor Discovery Schools offers anglers a chance to hone their fly fishing skills in specialized courses and tours that are easily accessible to those visiting or living along the East Coast. These courses, offered in the waters around Maine, Maryland and Virginia, allow participants a chance to refine their fly fishing skills beginning as early as April, and continuing into fall. Costs range from $95 to $395 with a minimum age of 12.
Fly Fishing Essentials I, offered in Maine and Maryland, is a half-day basic casting skills course that offers participants a great way to get started in the sport of fly fishing. In a fun and relaxed atmosphere, participants will learn the basics of fly fishing: the four-part cast, false cast, and roll cast; stripping and shooting line; and how to tie basic fishing knots. This class includes a "Women's only' course in both locations. Fly-Fishing Essentials II, offered in Maine and Virginia, is a two-day introductory course that includes both classroom sessions and time out on the water. It is a longer course that provides all the skills beginning fly-fishing enthusiasts need to confidently get out on the water alone.
L.L.Bean Outdoor Discovery Schools offers guided saltwater kayak and smallmouth bass fishing trips in Maine and Maryland, and private lessons. Many of the instructors and guides are Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Casting Instructors or Master Casting Instructors. Call 888-552-3261 to determine availability, or request selected dates online and an Outdoor Specialist will call within 24 hours to confirm availability.
The L.L.Bean Outdoor Discovery Schools started in 1979, and has grown to include many activities in the ensuing years, but the guiding principals have remained the same: Nature is something to be revered and stewarded. Family ties are a priority. Being neighborly is a matter of course. And sharing love of the outdoors is a way of life. These are the foundations of the business, and are inherent in every trip offered - whether it is a two-hour Walk-On Adventure or a three-day kayak trip.
