TAKU LAKE PARK
On Wednesday evening, Women’s Flyfishing™ Alaska and Fishe® Wear teamed up to set up a casting course open to the Anchorage public at Taku Lake Park. The course was set up with 9 golf-style holes that simulated obstacles that you would encounter while fly fishing in either lakes, streams, or in the saltwater flats. These included long distance casting, precision casting challenges, and general targets in the water. The weather turned out to be a bit rainy but we had plenty of brave Alaskan’s that came out to give the course a try!
The course proved to be slightly challenging for most but we saw nothing but smiles and good times being had as we walked the course to check in on our tough participants and provide them with much needed additional string for their lines!
The event was such a success that we will be hosting more casting course events throughout the area; hopefully with a little more sunshine next time!
Thank you to everyone who braved the weather and came out!
