Otherwise known as FF 101 -- offered as a day-long personal experience that guarantees no more than two anglers per instructor guide.

Your day of instruction opens with you meeting your instructor-guide along the banks of the river-way chosen for the day's activities. Here, you'll receive a full orientation that helps you understand trout tackle, fly-fishing gear and accessories, trout feeding habits, the insects trout feed on and the fly patterns that imitate them. Once your questions on those topics are answered, you'll complete your morning session with your casting instruction.

Fly Fishing Instruction

A deli-styled lunch opens your afternoon session at riverside. Watching the river for signs of rising trout, your instructor shares fishing stories that illustrate the afternoon session of instruction. Using the trout environs of the river, you'll then learn more about casting in real time and get a full indoctrination to where trout feed, why they feed, what they feed on and how to present the proper fly -- dries, nymphs and streamers -- at the right time to the right place.

Rainbow trout dominate the fisheries where your instruction activities take place, and you'll likely catch a few of these beautiful trout with your new-found skills with the fly rod! You might also snatch a feisty brown trout or even a beautiful brookie, depending on the riverway where your day of fly-fishing takes place. Among our venues are the Hiwassee River at Hayesville, NC; the Hiwassee River at Reliance, TN; or the Toccoa River tailwater below Blue Ridge Dam, near Blue Ridge, GA.
