Flyfishing instruction

"Give a man a fish and you will feed him for a day. Teach him to fish and feed him for a lifetime"

For the person who has never flyfished before to anglers wishing to improve their watercraft and skill set - learn from an angler with a background in education and over 30 years flyfishing experience.

A basic course (6-8hours) will cover

  • Fly casting techniques

  • Essential fly fishing knots

  • How to choose your gear and tackle

  • Stream entomology (the science of insects)

  • Proper fly selection

  • How to read water and currents

  • How to control your fly and line

  • How to play, land, and safely release fish

and include time on the water. A follow-up day is highly recommended and will be spent on stream. This is a perfect way to introduce children to the sport and timings can be negotiated to suit. We love parent/children days and can provide equipment for a small fee.

An intermediate course might focus on advanced nymphing techniques and the day spent fishing multiple sites learning the craft.
