Fly Fishing For College Credit

Students attending Tennessee's Northeast State Community College now have the option of taking a class in Hunting and Fly Fishing as an elective. The course is titled, "The Tradition of Hunting and Fly-Fishing".

"It (the class) will also cover the skill of fly-fishing including fly tying techniques and fly rod casting. And students, as an assignment, will actually learn how to make
their own fishing flies."

Now why didn't they have classes like this when I was in school? I hear that coeds can get extra credit by tying up a few nymphs for the professor's fly box.
