Guide School testamonial

Here is a testimonial from one of our graduates Morgan Kane.  He was also the winner of that year’s casting contest.

Rick,

The school was very informational.  I had a great time learning with the other students as well as the guides and teachers.  I really liked the time everyone really spent with the verbage of teaching.  Now the only way to keep this knowledge fresh is to continue fishing and teaching others that is why I am moving forward with it.  I have already bought my bond through the state and Im in the process of filling out my guides paperwork.  I’m also gonna start shadowing now that I am back from Belize.  This school was so informational one of the nights I was in Belize( nothing but fish on the brain….even tho it was my honeymoon), I had a dream that I was guiding a client on the Truckee river.  “Lob, lift and now lead the indicator down the seam”.  I had a blast and will continue striving forward to turn my passion into a career.

The networking side of things really helps as well.  Throughout the week I would post a new pic each day from our school.  I must have had over a half dozen replys or private messages about the Tahoe Fly fishing guides school.  I ranted nothing but positive replies because I feel the school has helped tremendously.

Thanks again,
Morgan

Upcoming 6 day intensive Fly Fishing School

Here is some exciting news!  This year we will be offering a 6 Day Intensive Fly Fishing School along side of our yearly Fly Fishing Guide School.  We have learned over the last 5 years of doing the Guide School that not all of our participants were interested in learning to be a guide but actually just wanted to become better fly fishermen.  This year we decided to take that feedback and offer a school for those just interested in taking their fly fishing skills to the next level.  Some of the workshops when appropriate will have both groups working side by side.  These include casting workshops, knot tying and rigging, entomology and fly selection, and rowing a drift boat to name a few.  All of the other time the groups will be split to work on their specific emphasis.  We are really excited about this and we look forward to working with both groups this year.  Specific information will be posted on the website soon.  If you have questions now, feel free to call or email me.
