Fly Fishing 101


Due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in our area, we’re suspending in-store FF 101 classes as described below. However, we are offering private lessons to be held for up to two people in outdoor parks close to town to ensure social distancing. These classes are typically held at Sequoyah Hills Park and feature an hour of casting instruction and the basics of tactics and gear to catch trout, panfish, and bass. These classes are typically held in the evenings after 6:00pm, but we can accommodate other times to suit your needs. For more info or to schedule a lesson, email

Bring a fly rod and reel with line if you have one, (if not, one can be provided in the beginning). We’ll be covering “what to buy” during the first class session so it is something that we can work around if you do not have one to start. Bring a notebook and pen to take notes. All graduates recieve 15% off their first purchase!

After taking the class, be sure to check out our Fly Fishing 201 classes to advance your fishing capabilities.

Course space is limited to 6 students.
