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!
As one of the most exciting ways to chase trout, "hucking meat" or streamer fishing is becoming a well-known phrase around Colorado. Hooking a fish on a streamer is a detailed memory you will maintain for years to come.
Have you recently found yourself looking at your fly boxes and thought something is missing? or Why do I not have anything that is big, flashy and articulated in here? If these are things that you find yourself contemplating on a regular basis then you'll be excited to know, we have just the class for you!
We are pleased to announce the dates for our Trouts Streamer School. The school is designed around a full day float with some of our best Frisco Guides! During the float, our guide instructors will teach you the basics of Fly Selection, Retrieval Methods, Presentation and setting, fighting, and landing a trout on a streamer. As one of our most popular schools, we suggest signing up early to grab one of our limited spots!
One thing is for sure; you can’t catch what you can’t present your fly to. Anyone who has been on the bow of a skiff has undoubtedly either trout set or was simply ill-prepared to get the fly to its intended target. Trust us, we’ve all been there!
To help ensure our customers are ready for their upcoming saltwater adventures, we started our salt-water prep school to provide our clients with the necessary skillset to make sure your presentation counts. During this class, we will cover loop formation, line speed, double-hall casting, and most importantly PRESENTATION! We will review best practices that help you and your guide work as a team. This school is offered exclusively out of our Denver, CO location.
Stillwaters are often overlooked by fly anglers. These bodies of water are dynamic, insect-filled, trophy trout holding areas that can produce some of your most memorable days whether from a boat or on foot. Stillwaters aren't just an escape from the high flows of runoff. Often these water fish the majority of the year and are a fruitful choice for your next day out! If you’ve been looking to dial in Stillwater fly fishing here in the Centennial State, then make sure to make room in your schedule for Trouts Stillwater School.
The school is designed around a full day float or wade (dependent on conditions) on one of Colorado's Stillwater fisheries with our very best Guides! During the class, our guide instructors will teach you the basics of fly selection, presentation, and other details you need to know when it comes to fly fishing these bodies of water!
As we begin to approach the colder months, we tend to see less dry fly activity. Although this may be the case, this shouldn’t keep you from getting out to fish. It’s no secret that trout spend the majority of their time feeding subsurface (upwards of 80%). In Vegas, those are some pretty good odds!
In order to more successfully fish to the subsurface trout, nymphing is the most common and productive technique. Trouts Nymphing School will introduce and dial you in to rigging, roll casting, presentation, mending, and proper drifting techniques. Our goal at the end of the class is for the individual angler to be more confident in their Nymphing technique to improve your success on your trips to the river!
Pike can produce some of the most explosive and entertaining eats of any fish that calls Colorado home. Fly fishing for Pike is one of the most addicting pursuits in the sport. While they can be aggressive, Pike can also be difficult to catch. If you’ve been looking to chase the so-called ‘Water Wolf ’ here in the Centennial State, then make sure to make room in your schedule for our Trouts Pike Schools.
These classes begin with an in-store presentation Friday evening Including seasonality, fishing locations, fish behavior, appropriate gear and flies. Saturday morning, class will resume at a designated location and cover presentation, and tactics on water. The remainder of the day will be spent targeting your quarry. This class will be offered out of our Denver location.
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!
