Gone fishing!

While there’s certainly no lakes on the CGHS Sale campus, you can still learn fly fishing.

This fun, relaxing and popular pastime is the subject of a workshop for CGHS WELLvember.

The session will be held in the Dining Room of the Sale campus on Thursday November 19 from 3-6pm. You will learn the history of fly fishing and its origin, the necessary equipment needed as well as demonstrations of fly tying and fly casting.

Fly fishing is surprisingly easy to do. You can do it at any age regardless of your fitness level, experience or expertise.

It provides one of the most fun ways to exercise, and it has the ability to completely wash away the stress of everyday life, from its therapeutic entertainment. What other exercise activity can you think of that allows you to burn tons of calories during the day, and not have the faintest clue your even working out?

The great thing about fly fishing is you can tailor it to your own abilities and needs. It’s a great activity for maintaining your long term balance, dexterity and muscle strength, and it does a very good job of keeping your brain sharp.

People often think that fly fishing is just for trout in mountain streams, that it’s expensive, and that it is very difficult to learn, but it doesn’t have to be that way. The truth is you can use a fly to catch almost any species of fish on any body of water. With some basic gear and a little know-how, you can have a great day fly fishing.

And it’s easy to learn.

So try something different and give this workshop a go. Prizes will be given for the best fly tying and the best fly casting.

It is just one of a range of fun and healthy events being organised for CGHS WELLvember.
