Want to learn to fly fish? Want to learn to tie a fly? Area opportunites are as abundant as rainbow trout in a freshly stocked mountain stream. Here are a few:
- Antietam Fly Anglers, an affiliated club of The Federation of Fly Fishers, a national organization, is headquartered in Hagerstown. The group promotes and encourages the sport of fly fishing and fly tying and the conservation of fishing resources in the Tri-State area.
Antietam Fly Anglers meets from September through June at Potomac Towers on the southwest corner of South Potomac and Baltimore streets in Hagerstown. Meetings begin at 7:30 p.m. the third Thursday of each month. The club has a monthly fly-tying round table the first Thursday of each month at Keystone Sporting Goods Inc. on Pennsylvania Avenue in Hagerstown. For information, call 301-739-5711.
