Fly fishing in a day class will give novice to experienced anglers the skills and tools to go catch fish on their own. We go over knots, hatches, equipment, casting and how to locate trout water. Most new anglers are one or two steps away from becoming a great fly fisher. Practicing casting and knot tying off the river will save you time and frustration on your next adventure. I will show you the process to target trout, salmon, or steelhead and all other skills needed to fish on your own!

Currently I am a licensed fly fishing guide in Montana. In addition I have worked in fly shops for 4 years gaining detailed knowledge of flies and equipment. My class is fully hands on we don't stop until all knots are correct and casting is spot on. After the tour you will have the confidence to tie strong knots, select appropriate flies, and enjoy a day of fishing on your own.

I was the lead FFID instructor for world famous Grizzly Hackle fly shop summer 2015. I enjoy teaching all levels of fishing abilities from novice to expert anglers. Fly fishing is an art and with dedication and practice you can catch trophy fish too.
