HOW IS PRICE DETERMINED?

Every custom course is priced specifically to that course. Many factors determine the price once I know: the duration of the program, the number of participants, course content and distance of travel.

Nothing compares to the peace and tranquility that fly-fishing provides. What sets this sport and art apart from other fishing is that the weight of the line, not the lure, provides the momentum for casting. Flies are tied with feathers, fur, and other materials to imitate aquatic insects and small fish. Fly-fishing has proven to be a more environmentally sound style of fishing compared to spin casting. There are many "fly-fishing only" bodies of water that provide great fishing opportunities.
In this class, 1-2 adult or teen students will learn how to fly-fish out on the river. Students will be set up with the skills necessary to get started on their fly-fishing journey. No experience or gear necessary although it is recommended you bring your own equipment. You will also go home with a selection of flies chosen for you.
