Our beginners fly fishing class is back in action in 2024. We know getting into the sport of fly fishing can be a confusing and somewhat intimidating task. We are here to help with our new curriculum rolling out. This class will help untangle the challenge of how to get started in fly fishing. We guarantee this class will teach you more in a day than you could teach yourself in a year. So if you're new to fly fishing or missed some steps along the way this class is for you.
This class will begin in the fly shop. Students will get a tour around the shop to make sense of all the gear. We will go over rods/reels/lines, boots/waders, packs, tackle and flies. From there we will start our classroom table talk. At the table guests will learn knots and how to do a basic rod set up. We will study flies and get an understanding of entomology.
After the in store portion of class we will take an intermission and meet back up on the river. From here we will spend a little over an hour doing a casting lesson. This is often considered the most valuable portion of the lesson. Developing the proper casting stroke from the beginning will save you headaches down the road when struggling to sling a fly rod.
Once the casting lesson is finished we will hit the water. On the river you will learn how to wade safely, approach a river and read the water to identify where fish like to hold. During the on the water clinic portion of the class the students will get to learn different techniques for river fishing. We will go over dry fly fishing, dry dropper, nymph, and streamer fishing for the rest of the day.
