Cast Your Skills With The Basics Of Fly Tying At The Salato Wildlife Education Center
FRANKFORT, Ky. – Join our staff and members of the Frankfort Fly Fishing Club to learn the basic techniques of fly tying and fly fishing at the Salato Wildlife Education Center in Frankfort from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 7.
Have you ever caught a fish on a woolly bugger or a popper? We will provide the necessary equipment for you to try your hand at tying flies. You can keep the flies that you make, too. We can also help anglers hone their skills with casting a fly rod. The cost of the class is $35 with registration required.
The Salato Center has a variety of native animals for the public to see, including a black bear, an eagle, bobcats, elk, deer, bison, snakes and fish. The center has numerous indoor exhibits and miles of hiking trails open to the public. Fishing is available at two lakes. While some programs may require a registration fee, general admission to the Salato Center is free.
