Fly fishing basics taught at Darke parks


GREENVILLE — Join Phill Hollinger, Darke County Parks’ fly fishing expert, on Saturday, June 18 at 1 p.m. at the Shawnee Prairie Preserve Nature Center to learn the basics of fly fishing.

Participants will discuss technique, flies (where and when to use them), where to fly fish locally, and more. After covering the basics, students will look into other supplies one may need, or desire, to make this sport their own.

Hollinger has been fly fishing since 2002 when a friend got him “hooked.” Since then, he has fly fished in Colorado, Tennessee, Michigan, Wyoming, Montana, Washington, Alaska and Ohio. One of Hollinger’s favorite aspects of the sport is the scenery. Space is very limited due to supplies, so sign up soon! A $5 fee for materials will be charged for this program, and preregistration is required.
