Schilling Beer Co., in partnership with Trout Unlimited and Chutters, announces the First Annual Dr. Richard J. Schilling Community Fly Fishing Celebration scheduled for Saturday, October 14. The event includes a casting clinic, educational booths, vendors, a catch and release tournament, a brewery dinner and a silent auction. “This was a very natural expression of seeking to honor my grandfather (“Opa”) by promoting the sport that he has been so passionate about all of his life–a passion that he shared with us and many others.” replied Jeff Cozzens, CEO and Co-Founder of Schilling Beer Co., when asked how the fly fishing celebration came to be. “This celebration is far from simply a technical seminar; it’s about sharing a generational passion and a lifestyle that can’t help but make us all better human beings.”
The morning kicks off with a Casting Clinic for beginners and children with local guide Paul Starring of Grid North Guide Service, expert Sean Doll and Trout Unlimited. The clinic will include two free sessions, the first from 9:00 to 10:15am and the second from 10:30 to 11:15am. Trout Unlimited will have loaner rods available for use and vendor tables will also be available. Basic fly rod set-up, fly tying, and entomology and stream restoration booths will be set up throughout the day to introduce and educate beginners and children to the sport of fly fishing, while fostering an appreciation for the river and giving them the confidence they need to succeed in the sport.
