Overview

This fishing program is for those fly fishing anglers who have already gone through our beginner course or are fairly proficient at fly fishing and are looking to improve their skills. On Friday evening, after a hearty home cooked meal there will be a workshop and review of casting, knots, and flies. Saturday morning after breakfast participants will go outside to the lawn to learn accuracy casting, managing with the wind, and distance casting. The afternoon will be spent on the river and pond to practice the new techniques. Two guides will be on hand all day to work with individuals on specific fishing issues. That evening after dinner there will be an evening program. Each participant will get a custom box of flies.
