From the first time I watched "A River Runs Through It," I've had a fascination with fly fishing. It looked so easy. But exactly like how Lebron James makes basketball look simple. And Mike Trout makes hitting bombs seem routine. It's not.

Master fly-fisher Bob Cappallo of Corsicana is all set to teach fly-fishing to us beginners coming up on Jan. 19 and Feb. 2 out at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center (TFFC) in Athens.

Classes will be open to adults and youths accompanied with an adult, and no fly-fishing experience is required. Equipment will be provided, but students may bring their own. The $50 fee for the class includes entrance to TFFC for the day of the class, lunch and a season pass to TFFC so students can return for more fishing as often as they like.

Bob is a member of Trout Unlimited and lives on Richland-Chambers Reservoir. He has fly-fished for trout throughout the US and redfish along the Texas coast as well as Tarpon in Puerto Rico. Bob also builds handmade bass and fly rods along with tying his own flies.

Classes are expected to fill up months in advance. Reservations are required and each class is limited to 20 persons. So if you're interested sign up today. For more information or to register by telephone for the class, call or email Craig Brooks at (903) 670-2222 or craig.brooks@tpwd.texas.gov.
