Class will be taught by Michael Lohman. Michael has over 40 years of fly fishing experience after beginning at the age of twelve along with his father who took up fly fishing at that time. He and his father learned to tie together and casting lessons were in the family pool and local pond.
Together, Michael and his father fly fished for trout, bass, bluegill, northern pike and walleye both locally and in Canada every year for a couple of weeks.
When Michael graduated from high school, his father took him to Florida to fish for tarpon. He caught three tarpon on that trip and was “hooked” on fishing the waters out of the Keys. Since then he has caught countess tarpon, bone fish, snook, redfish, sharks, and other types of saltwater fish. He has fished over a half-dozen tarpon tournaments. In PA, he loves to fish the State College area and the numerous world-class streams that are nearby.
Michael is an exceptional fly tier and he conducted the recent fly tying class here at Mainstream. He has given many casting lessons over the years. He enjoys seeing people learn which is why he continues to give back to the local fly fishing community.
