Gears N’ Reels


Hosts: Great Lakes Fly Shop and Spokengear Bike Shop 

We’ve partnered up with Spokengear to bring you our first installment of Gears N’ Reels. We will meet the morning of the 15th at the Donald D. Ferguson Demonstration forest for a casting lesson. After the casting lesson wraps up we will bike out to a local body of water and test our new skills on whatever will bite our flies! It should be a great time!

If you have a bike and need a rod, we can help you.
