Becoming proficient at fly fishing takes time and practice. Good instruction too helps speed the learning process up quite considerably. We have always had the idea, the more we can help you become better at fly fishing, the more success you have and the more you want to continue fly fishing. A win-win for both of us! For those with busy schedules, or have not been able to attend one of our fly fishing classes, we do offer private fly fishing instruction. We have set-up our private fly fishing instruction over the years to accommodate both new anglers and folks with existing skills. So whether you need to learn fly fishing from A-Z or just brush up on your double haul we can help you. We have two great instructors to accommodate your needs:
