Fly Fishing 101   NEW!

Receive a great fly fishing foundation through our Fly Fishing 101 class! This four hour course progresses from the classroom at Troutwater Fly Shop in downtown Ellensburg to the banks of the Yakima River and will give anglers the knowledge necessary to fly fish for trout. The course will cover the different methods of fly fishing, the necessary equipment and supplies, and solid instruction on casting techniques. After lunch, travel to the banks of the Yakima River for more casting practice and to study aquatic insects. Trout prey on these bugs and we’ll select a few artificial fly patterns to test your new found skills by fly fishing the Yakima River. Lunch is included. Follow up this class with the Fly Fishing ½ Day Guided Trip to really practice your new skills on a drift boat!

This course is taught by the experts at the Troutwater Fly Shop and Guide Service in Ellensburg. It includes all necessary equipment and supplies along with lunch. Consider following up this course with a half day guided fly fishing trip on the Yakima the following weekend to practice your new skills!
