Hooked on Fishing

Saturday 10

Newbies wade into the art of fly-fishing during Trout Day at Sugarbush Resort in Warren. Curious about casting? It's covered. Figuring out fly-tying? Take notes during demos. Looking to understand the basics of the sport? Chat with a local guide. A raffle, vendors, and food and drink from Umbrella Bar round out the day.
