Trouts Fly Fishing 101 classes are the perfect class for beginners of any age. In our 101 class, we cover an array of information starting with setting up your fly rod, terminal tackle, basic fly selection, knot tying, and reading the water. We understand that fly fishing can be frustrating and at times intimidating, we want to remove those for you. We want to be an integral part of you becoming a self-reliant, accomplished angler. With this in mind, the goal of our Trouts Fly Fishing 101 class is to provide people the opportunity to successfully wade into the sport of fly fishing.

Bugs For Beginners - DENVER & FRISCO

At one point or another, we have been on the water and watched fish seemingly jumping all around us, gorging themselves on the thousands of bugs. As fly anglers, we have heard the expression 'Match the Hatch', yet we continue scratching our heads while casting to fish uninterested in our flies. Without question, a better understanding of a trout’s diet will help improve your success with fly fishing.

Our Trouts Bugs for Beginners class will help demystify the major food sources trout key in on throughout the year. We will focus in on Midges, Mayflies, Caddis, Stoneflies, Terrestrials, and general attractors. Our class is designed and purposed to help you better understand the major insect groups including how to effectively identify and fish them. You will leave our class with the capabilities to successfully 'Match the Hatch'.

Beginner Casting Clinic - DENVER & FRISCO

Fly Casting is the cornerstone of the sport of fly fishing and a necessary skill for any proficient angler to master. With that said, there is something unnatural about the fly casting motion. As a result, learning the correct form, action, and muscle memory upfront is important to the success of any angler. In our Trouts Beginner Casting Class, we strive to make the art of fly casting an enjoyable process to learn. To do this, we have curated our Beginner Casting Clinics to be an encompassing experience that provides value to anyone who participates. We will focus on the primary casting approaches and types to set you up for success on any trout water.

Knots 101 - DENVER

Join us as we spend an hour focusing on an item that can be frustrating to new, novice, and experienced anglers. We will dial in the basic and most necessary knots and connection styles for rigging of all types. Come to learn from the ground up, or simply solidify and progress your current skill set to a greater level of independence.

Dry Fly School - DENVER

For most of us, it’s hard to beat classic dry fly fishing. The visual appeal of seeing the eat is addictive and just flat out fun! Many refer to this type of angling as 'purist' as it is one of the most classic presentations to learn and implement on the river.

Join Trouts as we walk you through dry fly rigging options and set ups, the ability to recognize and 'match the hatch', and education and training on an effective cast and presentation to get you those top water sips and eats. We will hold these throughout the spring and summer months allowing us to attempt to teach to differing hatches based on season, month, and temperature. Bring your dry fly fishing game to the next level through our skilled focused experiences!

Carp School - DENVER

Catching Carp on a fly rod is considered the ultimate freshwater challenge by many anglers. They’re smart, spooky, and at times downright challenging! During this on-water school, our expert instructors will provide you with the knowledge and tactics to increase your success when pursuing this worthy gamefish. In order to provide the best experience to this very specific species, we limit our class size to provide the best learning environment. This class will begin with an approximate 1-hour presentation the night before the on-the-water portion of the class to include appropriate gear and flies. Following this pre-presentation, you will spend the full day following at the designated location focusing on presentation and tactics. The remainder of the class, will be spent targeting and catching our quarry. Bring your favorite 6 or 7 weight rod, appropriate reel, and the recommended flies for a great day dialing in a difficult species!

Introduction to Euro Nymphing - DENVER

Born from competition fly fishing, Euro Nymphing is quickly becoming THE go-to style of nymph fishing. Google makes it easy for us to get overwhelmed with information on how to Euro Nymph. This class will get you started in the right direction and make it much easier to comprehend by breaking down the info into what you really need to know. In our Intro to Euro Nymphing class, we will cover equipment, rigging styles, flies and water types. We will also explain in detail the difference between Euro style and indicator style nymphing.

Two-Day Beginner School - DENVER

Our Two-Day Beginner School is designed for anyone looking to fast track their introduction into fly fishing.
