Mobility requirements: The grassy bank has a moderate slope. If you’d like to just watch the fun, bring a camp chair.
Equipment: Hap will provide flies, rod, line and leader.
What to wear: Sunglasses (or safety glasses, if you don’t have sunglasses), Water shoes or sneakers, if you’re willing to get them wet.
