The Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum will be conducting it's rod building school at our facilities in Livingston Manor, NY commencing 9:00 AM on June 24th and end Wednesday afternoon 6/29. Students are encouraged to arrive on Friday night for an informal class presentation. Noting the expanding interest in fishing cane rods, the CFFC&M took the initiative to build off the East Coast Cane Rod Makers Gathering held at the Center each September. This group has revived the art of cane rod building and CFFC&M will be the steward of this noble cause. Come join the Museum with master rod builders David Van Burgel, Kathy Scott and Art Port in a life time experience. The instructors will provide all materials and tools.

Tuition for the school is $1,400.00 which includes all materials and tools, sleeping accommodations in our Education Dormitory, breakfast and lunch, and written material on the rods to be worked on. Students are encouraged to stay the weekend after the class at our facilities to fish the many Catskill rivers at our doorstep. Students will also have time to fish in the evenings and hatches are at their peak during the class weeks.

If you are interested in the program, please fill out the attached application and reserve your place with a $400.00 deposit. The balance will be due on June 3, 2011. For additional information, call CFFC&M at (845) 439-4810 or email:
