The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM) will host a series of fly-fishing clinics led by Scott Travers at Portsmouth Free Public Library. The sessions are free, introductory classes for children to advanced instruction for experienced anglers. Three sessions are being offered: Monday June 13 at 6 PM, Monday June 20 at 6 PM, and Monday July 11 at 6 PM.
The DEM has introduced countless people to the joys of recreational fishing through the educational programming held at various sites around the state. These workshops offer a little something for everyone.
The fly tying classes are free and open to the public. Advance registration is required so enough materials will be on hand for the classes. Please stop by or call the library at 683-9457 to sign up.
