The Fly Shop's® 2-Day Fly Fishing Schools are a shorter version of our extremely popular 3 Day Seminar program, emphasizing fly casting fundamentals while introducing students to the basics of fly fishing.
The focus of the 2-Day schools is to welcome both beginner and intermediate anglers to an in-depth look at the different facets of fly fishing that make the sport both fun and interesting. Each instruction-packed lesson builds on the previous session and is combined with on-the-water practice fly fishing on the world-famous Trinity River in Northern California.
Expert fly fishing guides and instructors are on hand to help students learn about and improve their fly fishing skills. Our low teacher-student ratio ensures a comfortable and personal atmosphere, with plenty of individual time and attention. We cover an abundance of material during the school and the practice sessions and lessons are presented in a fun and relaxed fashion. As a bonus, guests at our 2 Day Schools are able to put their practice to work on the Trinity River, where they have opportunities to catch wild rainbow trout and steelhead in a beautiful river setting.
School Topics Include:
• Casting fundamentals, from the roll cast to the double haul
• Tackle Basics (selecting the right gear for each individual)
• Practical fly fishing knots
• Elementary and practical fly fishing entomology
• Fly fishing strategies and tactics: Dry Fly, Nymphs, & Streamers
• Reading the Water

The school is held at Indian Creek Lodge on the Trinity River. Indian Creek Lodge is right on the banks of the Trinity River, and a short drive to the river's exclusive fly fishing only section. The historic Indian
Creek Lodge is nestled in the mountains just 35 miles west of Redding and Interstate 5. The Lodge sits right on the banks of the Trinity River in the heart of the renowned steelhead and salmon water. The charming gold rush town of Weaverville and trailheads into the Trinity Alps Wilderness are just a few miles away, as is the Trinity River's well-known Fly Fishing Only Section.
Guests are accommodated on a double occupancy basis in well-appointed rooms with full baths. All meals are provided beginning Friday evening when instructors and students get to know each other and continue through lunch on Sunday as the guests prepare to depart.
All equipment required for classes will be provided. You will also receive a comprehensive notebook that will be a permanent record of all the subjects that were covered in the classes and a handy reference for future use.
After completion of one of The Fly Shop's® 2-Day Fly Fishing Schools, students will share an understanding of the basics of fly casting and feel compentent on the water. What's more, students will have a good foundation to continue their study and growth in the sport of fly fishing and fly casting.
