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 receive 15% off their first purchase!

After taking the class, be sure to check out our Guided Trips for a chance to get on the water and hone in your skills.

Course space is limited to 6 students.
