Much of your time will be spent on the fundamentals of the roll cast and the basic cast. Distance casting using the single haul, double haul, and oval casting methods, as well as many specialty casts will be taught based on each student's pace and desire. Additional topics that we can cover include:

• Approach & Presentation
• Reading Water
• Fly Selection
• Wading
• Playing the Fish
• Knots
• Tackle Choices
• Releasing Fish


You may bring your own equipment or use ours at no cost. In our shop, we have many different types of equipment from various manufacturers available. We encourage you to try as many different makes and models as possible while enrolled in the class. While participating in our program, all tackle at our shop is 25% off.


Trout fishing both before and after class is highly encouraged. Give us a call before you arrive, and we can go over all of the relevant details regarding permits and other considerations.
