Women’s Trout Fly Fishing School

 

If you are intent about becoming an active,competent, independent angler – this four day school is for you. You will take the plunge and focus on taking your fly fishing skills to the next level.

My biggest joy is when I develop independent anglers!

For the last 15 years I have been teaching fly fishing from  an1.5 hour casting lessons to  all day in the classroom or all day on the water  to multiple days on the water. My experience those that advance the quickest and retain their knowledge are those that have in-depth classroom time, and on the water time  – divided between guided and on your own time. We learn the fastest with repetitive practice in a short time frame. Thus I am very excited to off a 4-day intensive Fly Fishing School. The class is limited to 4 anglers.

After her 2nd day – Off to Solo Fishing

The Framework of the Curriculum

The School will kick off on the evening  before with a casual social and a refresher on knots or casting at 7:00

On Day 1 – We’ll be on the water all day.  You’ll spend 1/2 the day with me coaching you and the other 1/2 the day experiencing fishing on you own. There is nothing like being on your own to discover what you know and what you don’t know.  We’ll start at 9:00 and end at 6:00

On Day 2 – We’ll spend our days split between casting on the grass on in-depth education on bugs, reading the water, rigging, and line management. Topics will be turned based on your experience on Day 1.  We’ll start at 9:00 and end at 6:00

On Day 3 – We will be back to the water all day. You’ll spend 1/2 the day with me coaching you and the other 1/2 the day experiencing fishing on you own. There is nothing like being on your own to discover what you know and what you don’t know.  We’ll start at 9:00 and end at 6:00

On Day 4 – Our topics will focus casting, fly selection and rigging. Yes a second go around on these topics, in more depth. It’t the repetition of these topics – that will enable you to retain you newley improved skills. And to be independent you need to be able to try your flies on and cast them effectively.  We’ll start at 9:00 and end at 2:00

Socializing – With no doubt I know that the 4 individuals who attend these classes will build a lasting bond for future fishing trips. Also when learning in a small group of 4 your able to ask more -indepth questions and also learn from the questions of others.

Meals – Your lunches will be provide on Day 1 to 4. You’ll need to pay for your own breakfast and dinner – our plan will do these as a group.

Accomodations at the Sisters Bunkhouse

Each participant will have their own room for privacy during the school. At the Bunkhouse there is a small social area where you can chat as a group at the beginning and end of the day. There is a small group refrigerator to store you snacks and favorite beverages.

Cost – The cost for the 4-day Intensive Fly Fishing School is $1000. This includes your lodging, guide fee, flies, class instruction and your lunches. It does not include fishing licenses and gratuity.

Payments – To receive your spot – a 50% down payment is required.  The reminder will be due 45 days before the school. Prior to 45 days a refund will be provided. After that – your fees will only be refunded if a replacement is found for you.

Spring Time – Time to tone up that casting

It’s springtime – while the base ball teams are all at Training Camps – maybe us anglers should take the lead from them. Spend some time tuning up your cast for the upcoming trout season.  As you know I have a crazy obsession with fly fishing education, not sure, where it come from, maybe from my personal pursuit and how lucky I was to have a mentor and realize others don’t. I think it comes more from the realization that fly fishing is  an absolutely rewarding hobby – but it takes commitment and time to become efficient. And, I  may sound sharp  but I feel like the fly fishing industry really doesn’t have a effective  education model. It’s either a free two hour class or a guided day. There has got to be a better solution for all of us anglers.

That being said – I pulled this short casting video together.  I hope it’s short and simple and gives you motivation to go out and practice the cast.
