This clinic is designed to provide anglers of all experience levels with the essential skills to advance their fly fishing technique. This is not a “catching fish” clinic (even though on the 4 Hour clinic you may catch fish), but an instruction intensive seminar designed to help you become a better angler. This course takes place at the Fly Shop and is divided into three different components: Fly selection, Casting Technique, and Equipment and Terminal Tackle Review (including basic knot tying).
What is provided on a Walk-In Fly Fishing Clinic?

Things to Consider on your Walk-In Fly Fishing Clinic:
- 2 Hour Walk-in Clinics are first come, first serve – a maximum class size of 4 participants.
- 4 Hour Walk-in Clinics are first come, first serve – a maximum class size of 3 participants.
- Clinics do not Replace Guided Trips – they are to give you the skills and tools to get out on the water, but will not give you the on-the-water time that a guided trip offers.
