The good folks at Orvis—makers of all things angling—have announced 12 days this summer when the company will hold free fly-fishing lessons at more than 160 locations nationwide. From Maine to California, budding anglers can learn fly-fishing basics, such as casting, tying knots, and rigging a rod, from experienced instructors at no cost.

Orvis will offer two classes, Fly Fishing 101, which will cover core angling fundamentals, and Fly Fishing 201, during which students will head to the stream and put their new skills to the test. 

Head over to the Orvis website to see if there’s a course happening near you.
