For those who are taking their first steps into the world of fly fishing, this introductory class is for first timers who want to learn basic skills and get that first exposure to the sport. You wont be expert anglers to start with but you’ll be getting there. This four-hour experience will teach you about equipment, basic casting techniques, how to pull your fish in, and introduce native Colorado species. The goal is to formulate the basic fly-fishing skills that we can then build upon. Our patient, experienced, and knowledgeable guides will walk you step-by-step how to cast gracefully and learn the art of this beautiful sport.
Itinerary: We will depart from your hotel or our Boulder office and drive 5-20 minutes to our river or lake that we will be fishing. While driving, we will cover vital safety and basic fishing information. Although we will plan a time to meet when we make the reservation your fly fishing guide will call you before the trip to confirm the meeting time to best set you up for fishing success. Most half day trips usually start around 7:30am or 1:00pm and include 3-4 hours of fishing.
