Case Western Reserve Summer SAGES Seminar Casts Excitement into Literature
This summer, Case Western Reserve University students will hang the "gone fishing" sign on the classroom door, but that doesn't mean they are taking a break from learning. Royal Coachmen, Wooly Buggers and Fate: The Literature of Fly Fishing, a summer seminar, will immerse students in the lore, mystique and skill of fly fishing.
"Not only will students examine literature that spans over seven centuries of the sport, but they will also have a hands-on opportunity to acquire fundamental fly fishing skills," said John Orlock, the Samuel B. and Virginia C. Knight Professor of Humanities and the course instructor.
Thanks in part to a generous gift from the Orvis Company, students will have the opportunity to try their hand at fly casting and tying, practicing the skills authors like Ernest Hemingway, Norman Maclean and Arnold Gingrich have romanced about for years. Read more.
