Description:

This is a comprehensive starter course for women only. The purpose of this class is to help students develop the skills and understanding necessary to catch trout on a fly rod.

The first session introduces you to fly fishing theory, rigging the rod, casting, knot tying and entomology (as it pertains to fly selection). The Saturday on the river focuses on developing critical techniques in fishing nymphs, dries and streamers.

Your instructor will also cover the topics of wading safety, trout behavior, entomology, reading the water, playing, landing and releasing fish.

  1. What do I need to bring?
    Everything for the class will be provided. If you have a fly rod you can bring it, but your guide will have a full array of Sage rods, reels and fly lines for you to use.
  2. What kind of clothing do I need?
    You will need to wear something comfortable for the classroom session as you will be inside and outside; bring a hat, light jacket and anything else you may need. For the river, you will be in waders so it's recommended to wear synthetic pants underneath that will wick moisture and keep you dry. Cotton and blue jeans are not recommended as they will retain moisture and are very bulky. Layer on the top as it may be cool in the morning and warmer in the afternoon, this way you can shed a layer when you start to warm up.
  3. Will the class be cancelled due to inclement weather?
    An assessment will be made the week of the class. The class may take place rain or shine, but may be cancelled in the event of snow or severe inclement weather. Always contact the experience provider directly with any questions regarding weather conditions. In the event of a cancellation due to weather, you will be able to reschedule directly with the experience provider.
