Have time on your hands? Put a fly rod into them.
The ever inventive East Bay Regional Parks District is offering an Introduction to Fly Fishing all day on January 11 at Lake Anza. First you practice the zen art of casting with a certified instructor then an intensive session of tying flies and the esoterica of “reading the water”.
Come to think of it, this isn’t a bad Christmas gift for an idle retiree. Be advised, however, that this innocuous hobby has been know to evolve into an addiction.
The fee is $66. Phone to register at 1-888-EBPARKS.
