2018 Fly Fishing Clinics open to Atlanta Fly Fishing Members
* Confirmed Clinic Leaders
** Beginner and Intermediate clinics (promoted at the Atlanta Fly Fishing Show).
- Clinic dates are set by the on-water clinic leaders. Many factors go into setting the clinic dates including the upcoming weather forecast, water release schedules, club fly fishing trips, club casting clinics, and AFFC event participation (such as the Atlanta Fly Fishing Show in February). Every attempt will be made to minimize date conflicts.
- The number of participants for each clinic will be set by the clinic leader(s).
- Clinic updates will take place via AFFC Yahoo!Groups email. Watch your inbox!
- Clinic dates may change once set based on extenuating circumstances. See (first bullet) EVERY clinic participant must be current on their annual club dues.
