Beginning Fly Fishing
Lifelong Learning

Immerse yourself in the outdoors and join us for a basic introduction to fly fishing. You'll start with an evening of in-class discussion about gear, techniques, knots, and fly selection with a local fishing expert and guide. On Saturday, join your guide for a day on the river to be taught by the true experts of fly fishing--the trout. Not sure you're ready to invest in fly fishing gear? Don't worry, your instructor will have rental equipment available for an extra fee. For the day on the river, you'll be responsible for providing your fishing license, sack lunch, polarized sunglasses (essential for eye protection), and either waders and boots or clothes and shoes that can get wet. The day on the river is physical and requires wading with slippery rocks and strong currents.
