Advanced Fly Fishing School

Advanced Fly Fishing School

North Fork Ranch Guide Service’s Advanced Fly Fishing School is like nothing you’ve seen before! This four day intensive fly fishing school is aimed at producing the finest instruction coupled with the most in-depth experience you can imagine. From expert-led fly fishing casting clinics, to one-of-a-kind 301 Instruction and line management instruction on private dry-fly rivers, this class is uniquely designed around our client’s interests.

In the first section of Advanced Fly Fishing School, we begin with in-depth instruction on how to fine-tune every aspect of your fly casting technique. Our expert instructors work diligently to teach you the advanced techniques of casting. On the second day of our Advanced Fly Fishing School, we go into deeper instruction on how to read water, and ultimately practice what we’ve learned on either our privately-stocked ponds or the surrounding rivers. On the third day, we take our participants to the dry-fly specific stream to work on their casting presentation. When dry-fly fishing, it is important to have a delicate presentation and a graceful cast; this is why we dedicate time to this specific fishing tactic. And on the final day, we take you to one of the rivers you have yet to visit and send you off. Though we are watching from a distance to correct fundamental mistakes, this day is for self-learning through experience.
