Fly Fishing weekend at Cass: 19th-21st February 2021
This is where some of our best Fly Fishers come to teach the finer points of being able to successfully put out a fly to tempt even the fussiest of trout.

Paul Centifanti and Andy Sheppard will be masters in charge. For those who have merely toyed with the thought of “crossing over from the dark side” this week end is a must for you to attend.
