FLY FISHING 301

Class spaces are limited. Call or stop by to reserve a spot.

Whether you are a beginner or you are someone that just wants a little guidance on how to become a better fly fisher, nothing beats time on the water with a knowledgeable guide or instructor. Our classes are the next step in your fly-fishing education. Designed to give you a great on-the-water fly-fishing experience, the day's instruction is built around specific techniques and local fisheries.

We shall cover:

  • Fly-casting techniques
  • Essential knots
  • How to choose your tackle
  • Lake entomology (the science of insects)
  • How to simplify fly selection—you don’t need hundreds of patterns!
  • How to locate fish on a stillwater
  • How to play, land, and safely release fish

Please see store associates or call for class details.
