New Fly Fishing Course

In an effort to get interested people into the sport of fly fishing and to help out the struggling angler, we are now offering a Fly Fishing Basics Course.  This course is 4 to 5 hours in length and will have a minimum of 3 participants and a maximum of 8.  The cost for the course is $100 and includes everything but a fishing license.  Topics to be covered include equipment, entomology and fly selection, knots and rigging, basic casting, safe wading, fighting and landing fish, reading water, fly presentation, and catch and release techniques.  This course differs from our traditional Introduction to Fly Fishing course in that we are actually on the water in a fishing situation for part of the course.  It also differs from our full on guided trip in that the focus is on instruction and it is a larger group with one guide.  The course will be offered on the following dates:

Friday, August 15 and 22

Friday, September 12 and 19

If you are interested or have questions contact the shop at 530-541-8208.  All courses meet at the shop at 7:00 am.
