SHARE Chicago fishing: Joseph Meyer offers small-stream, fly-fishing lessons

Joseph Meyer, the great teacher of fly casting for Chicago fishermen, is offering one-hour lessons on-water this weekend.; and I highly recommend it.

I had the chance to do this a couple years ago on Salt Creek in Hinsdale and came away much impressed with his teaching, and actually improved my fly casting and my understanding of what I should be trying to do when fly casting.

Here are the details on the reduced price offer from Meyer:
