Learn in two days what could take years to discover on your own! Our goal is to introduce you to what you will encounter in the world of fly fishing.

You will learn from accomplished casting instructors the basics of a good cast as well as advanced casting techniques. We teach knots, equipment, entomology, how to read water and think like a fish! Our objective is to make you an independent angler by teaching you the basics and build from there -or help you to get rid of bad habits. This school is great for beginners and experienced anglers. All schools include two days of instruction, rod fees, written material, lunch and equipment.  Small classes and low instructor-guide ratio provides BIG FUN!
