Basic Fly Fishing Instruction
Never picked up a fly rod? Looking to improve your cast and to learn the ins and outs of fly fishing? Want to learn how to tie a knot? The instruction and classes are customizable for your level of fishing and area of interest.
The half and full day classes are the answer. We will examine the theory and practice of fly casting and provide individual casting instruction at each student’s pace. In addition, we will review equipment and knot tying, trout habitat, insect hatches and fly selection.
On the river, you’ll learn about reading water and presentation as well as catching, playing, and releasing fish. Our classes are held along the banks of the Crystal or Roaring Fork Rivers and its tributaries. Fishing in this beautiful Colorado mountain setting with the expert guidance of your friendly instructor, Paula Fothergill, makes for a truly memorable experience.
