Our fly fishing instructors have all been trained by Kevin Howell (Fly Fishing Masters Champion). The instructors are all excellent casters and are eager to share their knowledge with others. We keep a very low instructor to student ratio so that you can maximize your education.

The focus of our two day school is to help the beginner and intermediate fly fisher gain a better understanding of the different facets of fly fishing. Each lesson will build on the previous lesson and help reinforce what you have learned.

School Topics Include:

  • Tackle Basics (selecting the proper rod and gear for your needs)
  • Casting (from roll cast to aerial mending)
  • Knots
  • Basic Entomology and fly selection
  • Fly Fishing Strategies (Nymph Fishing, Dry Fly and Streamer Fishing)
  • Mending
  • Wading and Wading Safety
  • Reading Water (understanding where the fish live)
  • Hooking, Fighting and Landing Fish

The first day of the school, you will focus on instruction both in our classroom as well as on the Davidson River. On the second day, you will cover wading safety and stream navigation. Then the afternoon of the second day you will be joined by our guide staff for a half day guided fly fishing trip on our private trophy trout stream, where you can put your new education to work.

Don’t worry if you need gear, we will provide any gear you need while you are participating in our two day school.

Space is limited so please call the shop toll free 888-861-0111 or email us at info@davidsonflyfishing.com to reserve your spot.

Our two day fly fishing school cost $395 per person.
