 Annual Fly Fishing School Canceled for 2021

The 43rd Annual CWTU Dan Harmon III Fly Fishing School had to be cancelled in 2020 due to the Covid virus.  Unfortunately we had to cancel again in 2021 because of not knowing what the status of the virus would be in June of 2021. We look forward to hosting this every year and we apologize for any inconvenience caused by those that signed up for the 2020 school and were looking forward to attending in 2021. 

We had to make a decision early because of our arrangements with the facility we host it at, advertising, etc., and we decided to error on the side of caution with the safety of our participants and staff being our number one concern. Our plan is to host the school again in 2022, running the first weekend in June, Saturday and Sunday, June 4th and 5th.

Hoping this Virus gets over or at least allows us to get back to some kind of normal. Best regards, Jeff Treu and the CWTU staff.

Fly fishing is a sport for a lifetime.  From the beauty of being on a sparkling trout steam, the rhythmic motion of casting, the thrill of the trout's rise to your fly, to the bright colors of the trout itself, fly fishing is a captivating pursuit enjoyed by men and women for centuries.
