There's simply no better way to immerse yourself in fly fishing than to spend a weekend learning from a guide. Our weekend fly-fishing school will help make you a better fly angler! We teach self-sufficiency on the water. Our goal is that when you finish our weekend school, you'll be able to go fly-fishing on your own!

Check in is on Friday. Participants will meet at 8am on Saturday morning for breakfast, followed by a morning lesson in fly-casting. After lunch, it's time to hit the river and learn the ins and outs of dry fly fishing. The evening is yours to enjoy (which more than likely means more fishing!) Sunday morning will once again begin at 8am with breakfast, followed by time of the river, first with a little dry fly fishing if the trout are rising, and then with a comprehensive class on fishing wet flies and nymphs.

In short, this weekend school is the best instruction and best value you'll find anywhere. Taught by FFF Certified Master Instructor Mark Hendricks. Participants should bring waders, fly rods (rentals of both are available) and as much of their own gear as possible including bug dope, multiple layers of clothing (including a rain jacket), sunglasses, and sunscreen. All flies are included. Over 12 full hours of instruction! Two breakfasts, a lunch on Saturday, and two nights lodging. Limit 6 people, so call the shop ASAP to book your spot, 989-348-8462.
