Simplify the basic tenets of fly casting and fishing so the student will be able to immediately enjoy this activity on Wyoming's wonderful waterways.
Beginners will be taught basic casting skills, tackle set-up and basic knots. The students will also receive an introduction on how to spot fish and what artificial flies to use in this area. Experienced fly fishers will receive a refresher on fundamentals and assistance in refining casting and fishing skills.
Eighty percent of the instruction is "hands on" and designed to allow the students to immediately apply their skills to a fly fishing situation.
Many are beginners, one third of which are women. We enjoy working with youngsters and find that around age ten is a good time to start this learning process. Experienced fly-fishers use the school for a brush-up or development of new casting techniques.
