Fly-Fishing and Its Literature

Fly fishing at Lake Chalgrove at Hampden-Sydney CollegeCoordinator and Academic Advisor: Dr. Lee King '94, Vice President for Institutional Advancement

This Community is meant for students who have a strong interest in fly-fishing and a desire to explore further their interests through practice and reading. Students in this community will be enrolled together in a one-credit hour seminar where they will read relevant selections ranging from Hemingway's "Big Two-Hearted River" to Norman Maclean's A River Runs Through It to modern fly-fishing journalism. Outside of class, students will have the chance to share knowledge, and take trips to fish in diverse habitats-from small mountain streams to large rivers. Students enrolling in this Community should be prepared to take occasional weekend trips, be willing to camp when needed, and be prepared to bring all necessary fishing-related equipment to Hampden-Sydney.
