For those that are new to the art of fly fishing or anglers that want to hone specific skills, this two day class is a terrific option. Day one will be spent on the Bishop’s Lodge stream at the Fly Fishing Outpost to cover all facets of fly fishing – casting, fly selection, knots, basic entomology, and fishing methods and techniques. On day two, guests and guide will depart from the lodge for a full day of fly fishing at one of the area’s best fishing locations.
Fly fishing isn’t necessarily just about catching fish. The experience of being outdoors, slowing down and observing nature and your surroundings is in many ways what the art of fly fishing is all about. We offer specific trips geared as much towards finding inner peace and harmony with the natural world as the fishing. Learning how to be one with nature and the water actually will end up making even a proficient angler more skilled.
