Fly Fishing School

Fly Fishing School is not only for beginners, but it is the perfect place to start. This five hour school covers everything you need to know to get started from scratch. While attended by many who have never cast a rod, it is equally taken by seasoned fisherman who were self taught and want to brush up on the basics. You’ll enjoy the comfortable, relaxed style of instruction that allows you to learn at your own pace. It makes learning fly-fishing fun.

Advanced Casting School

The advanced fly casting class is designed to help good casters become much better fly casters

Fly fishermen benefit by becoming better fly casters when they improve their casting accuracy, distance, efficiency, loops and line control. The advanced fly casting class is designed to help good casters become much better fly casters while improving all aspects of their casting ability. This class is not for beginning fly fishermen but is for advanced casters that strive to perfect their cast and improve their ability to cast under adverse conditions.

The course utilizes a digital casting analyzer developed by Dr. Noel Perkins of the University of Michigan and Bruce Richards of Scientific Anglers. It also utilizes dual angle digital photography and unique software for evaluation of casting problems. The class is limited to six students and takes approximately 6 hours of instruction and analysis to complete. The class is administered by FFF certified casting instructors and includes lunch. Students are encouraged to arrive on time and be well rested.

Private Lessons

Whether you are learning to cast for the first time, honing your double-haul skills for a trip to the salt flats, or just want to add other tactical maneuvers to your arsenal, a one-on-one private lesson is the fastest way to improve. Private lessons are typically used for casting instruction with an analysis of your casting by video or digital image, however, we can utilize the time to address any questions you may have. The one-on-one assessment of your casting with professional instruction insures your progress to better casting and presentation.

LESSON CONTENT: emphasis is on casting analysis, improvement, and specialty casts. Private lessons can also be used to review equipment, for a private school, to tune up for an upcoming trip or just to get answers to your questions.

Certified Casting Instructor School

A class designed to help future fly casting instructors. If your goal is to help others learn the art of fly fishing we can show you how. Being good at fly fishing does not make you good at TEACHING fly fishing to others. These are two very different skills. The Federation of Fly Fishers (FFF) has an excellent, 2 level, certification program for Certified Casting Instructors and Master Certified Casting Instructors. Our instructors and classes can help you become a better teacher and help prepare you with the skills you will need to take a certification exam.
