Guide School

May 9-14, 2016

About the Course

As a student you will be taught by some of the Sierra’s best fly fishing guides and instructors. It is this staff that characterizes the quality of instruction that you will receive as a student in our guide school. Take a look at our instructor biography page to gain further insight into the teachers, guides, and instructors that will be working with you.

Your guide school experience will include 6 days of outside and on the water instruction. This will include a half day classroom session and a full drift boat day.  We feel that being outside instead in a classroom is the best environment to learn how to be a successful guide.  Also included is the opportunity for every student to spend one full day with one of our guides as a shadow in an actual guiding situation.  That comes out to seven full days of guiding instruction to give you the most comprehensive guide school experience in the industry.

School curriculum includes: teaching fly casting with an FFF certified Master Casting Instructor, entomology and fly selection, guest services, guiding & teaching the beginner to the expert, local waters, risk management, fish and game law, public service, marketing strategies, and many other topics designed to help you become the best fly fishing guide possible.

7 Day Experience: $1500.00

Our generous sponsors also provide all students with some of their products as gifts for their involvement in our school.  With all of that, the choice is simple when you choosing a fly fishing guide school as you pursue your dream.  Tahoe Fly Fishing Outfitters is the one!

About our School

Our first guide school was held in 2006 and the guide school continues to improve and grow! Most participants have gone on to work in the industry from here to Alaska and many parts in between. We offer a top notch school and feel that if you can guide in the Sierra’s, you can guide anywhere in the world!
