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
