Fly Fishing School

If you enjoy the streams and lakes of the Rockies, this school is for you. Fly Fishing School is designed for both beginning and novice anglers. The basics regarding gear, knots, bugs, fish behavior and casting are covered in three evening classes and two field days. Our school (or similar experience) is required for Denver Group fly fishing trips.  For $160 you will receive a comprehensive handbook covering all aspects of fly fishing, 20 flies and many accessories with a value of $100.  You will need rod, reel, line, waders, boots and CO fishing license by the first field day (4 weeks after first class).  If you need gear, instructors can assist you in equipment selection during the class nights.
