Beginner Fly Fishing Private Instruction

Maybe your schedule does not work with our scheduled schools.  Or, maybe you want to have a one on one class to yourself.  It could be, you have a small group that would like to stay in a group.  Or, you may want your class on a weekday.  If you fall into one of these categories, our private instruction program is perfect for you.

The first half of your day will be spent in our classroom, learning the basics of fly fishing.  During that time, you and your friends or family will also spend time on our casting lawn at the shop, practicing casting a fly rod.  You will learn to tie knots, get an understanding of flies and why we use certain patterns and different times.  A detailed explanation of the equipment and tackle will be taught.  We provide everything you need.

At noon, you will break for lunch.  We also provide your meal, which is catered by a local restaurant.

After lunch, we will fit you with a pair of waders, and you will be driven by your instructor to a stream in the Smoky Mountains, not far from our School and Fly Shop.  There, you will be taught wading safety and learn to cast on the stream and present your fly to trout.  You may even catch one.

To give you close personal attention, and to safely teach you to wade and fly fish in a stream, we require one instructor, with no more than two students. 

All of our instructors are professional and licensed guides, trained to teach our curriculum.  We are licensed and permitted by the State of Tennessee and the National Park Service.

Please call us at 865-448-9459 if you are interested in a private instruction day for yourself or for you and a small group of friends.
