Whether you choose to pursue the art of fly fishing in the big rivers of the west, the smallest of high mountain streams, lakes or ocean flats, I can provide professional fly fishing and fly casting instruction to show you everything you need to know.

As a beginner, I recommend you take the opportunity to enjoy learning the necessary fly fishing skills and correct fly casting techniques from a certified instructor. By selecting this course you will be avoiding the many common casting faults and frustrations experienced by so many fly fishers. For the experienced or self taught fly fisher, it may be that, over time, you have developed a whole range of common but frustrating faults in your casting style. Should you wish to improve not only your fly casting technique but your overall fly fishing skills, then let me help you identify those casting problems, and work with you to correct them.

For novices and advanced fly anglers alike
. Spend an hour or two with a personable and professional instructor and improve your fly casting technique, add distance to your cast or put some new tricks in your casting repertoire. This hourly private instruction is intended to give personal hands-on guidance and is a great way to drop old habits and set in motion new skills that will make your time on the water more enjoyable. Advanced reservations necessary, equipment can be provided at no additional costs.
