Default Re: Fly fishing for school credit?

University of Idaho has a fly tying class, pretty basic class just show up and learn how to tie flies. I believe there may be a little 2 credit casting class but it is no more than walking out on the Admin lawn and learning to cast.

Now, someone correct me if I am wrong but one of the Universities in Oregon has a very respected fly fishing and fly tying offering.

I ran a "virtual fly shop" called Vermont Streams on line from 1999-2003. In those early days I had to pay someone to customize a shopping cart system for me. I made a few dollars, met some great people and learned quite a bit about the sport. I figure it cost me as much as a Masters Degree, but was more fun!

Check this out.... It was written by Stan Ulanski, professor at UVA, to support a general education class. The course covers physics, entomology, geology, lymnology, history, philosophy into an integrated whole... excellent background book but it also provides the structure for a course similar to the one you mention.


The Science of Fly-Fishing: Stanley Ulanski: 9780813922102: Amazon.com: Books The Science of Fly-Fishing: Stanley Ulanski: 9780813922102: Amazon.com: Books


A correction is in order... Ulanski is a professor at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA. The book was published by University of Virginia Press. Not often that a fly fishing book gets a University imprint....
