Become the best fly fisherman you know

At Trout’s Fly Fishing, we understand the importance of providing a quality educational experience for those looking to get into the sport of fly fishing. The goal behind our fishing school is to offer our customers, no matter what their age or experience level, an opportunity to learn something new about fly fishing. Whether it’s teaching children to fish, learning to dry fly fish for western trout, mastering the art of casting to wary saltwater fish, or learning to tie your own flies, we have the instructors and classes for you.

At one point we have all been novice anglers, and we all understand the difficulties and frustrations that exist for beginners. Yet we also know that satisfaction and sense of accomplishment that comes from mastering this beautiful sport and becoming a self reliant angler. It is our understanding of this unique educational process, and our love of introducing people to the sport of fly fishing that truly separates us and our fly fishing school from the competition. For those who prefer a more one on one learning experience, we offer a wide variety of private fishing classes including fishing lessons, casting clinics, tying instruction, and guided trips.

Below is a list of the fly fishing educational options we are currently offering for the 2016 season.
