Introduction to Fly FIshing (ITFF)
This program consists of three in-class mornings which offer instruction in knot tying, casting, and fly fishing skills; an on-the-water day on the Los Angeles River to provide the feel of real water on your line, and the graduation outing in the town of Bishop in the eastern Sierra Nevada mountains. The graduation outing provides time with skilled guides to "get the feel" of the sport and to make friends with folks like yourself who are interested in the skills. Introduction To Fly Fishing - Class #1 - 2/24/2018

Rod Building
Catching a fish on a fly you have tied adds additional pleasure to the sport, but just imagine you caught that fish using a rod that you built. Here is your chance to build the rod you have always wanted at a fraction of the cost. This program offers expert guidance and skills needed for you to wrap and finish your own fly rod. Registration opens soon.

Nymphing Clinic
This outing centers on the skills needed to successfully fish sub-surface using flies representing nymphs as bait. The insects consumed by trout take several stages in life form development. The weekend includes instruction by experienced guides in rigging your line and flies for this type of fishing. 

Nymphing Clinic is scheduled for October 26-28. CLICK HERE for the calendar event and more information.
