Fly Fishing Schools
Fly fishing, in the minds of many, is contagious. Once exposed to the sport, it can affect your soul and you will forever be afflicted with the addiction. Those new to the sport are curious to know its nuances and anx- ious to understand why seasoned anglers are so passionate about fly fishing. Even those who’ve done it for years find themselves thirsty for greater knowledge, or just one more trick to fool one more wary fish into inexplicably taking that silly clump of chicken feathers and deer hair wrapped around a hook.
THERE’S NOTHING thatwecareaboutmorethan introducing our passion for fly fishing to others, and that’s part of why we’ve developed one of the premier fly fishing education programs in the country.
The curriculum includes fly fishing programs for begin- ning, intermediate, and advanced fly fishers, technical sem- inars, and The Fly Shop’s popular FishCamp for kids and our Family FishCamp (see the following page for details).
Our expert teaching staff has a fine-tuned approach to instruction that makes learning the sport easy, fun, and fast.
ANTELOPE CREEK RANCH on the north slope of Mount Shasta is our main fly fishing instruction campus. Our classroom includes two miles of private stream and two pristine, trophy trout lakes. Students will put their lessons immediately into practice and reinforce their new skills on our superb, fisherman-friendly water (see pages 18-19 for lodge details). It’s an ideal learning locale, and a spot that reinforces instruction with angling action.
Our clinics instill a permanent sense of enthusiasm, en- sure success, and guarantee new entrants into the sport will start off with the right habits.
Students will enjoy wonderful accommodations, deli- cious meals, and are taught in an informal lodge atmos- phere. There is plenty of room at the lodge, and it is a superb place to relax.
