As instructors do our best to give you as much information as you can take during the 101/Beginner class but most of us can only retain so much information at one time. So we now offer "advanced" classes for those who seek to further their fly fishing skills and knowledge. This advanced class - "Fly Fishing 102" covers topic including, How to double haul, how to cast further,for more information on 102 Class Click link Fly Fishing 102 - Advanced Class
*Guided Fishing Trip Option: We always advocate for a half or full day guided fishing trip for those seeking to learn the finer points of fly fishing. This is a "one-on-one" learning opportunity where you are on the river actively receiving instruction and actually fishing at the same time. These are professional fishing guides but specialize in instructional services and find more value in instruction than any other service. And having a good time of course. If you would like to book a trip give us a call and we can discuss the details and a date. Thanks! Half-Day Walk n' Wade Rates: $200-1person / $250-2person. for more rates call or click link: Guide Trip Rates
