Northeast Fly Fishing School®
Lately, we have been getting a lot of clients who went to a "Brand
Name Fly Fishing School" for a weekend and became frustrated
when they came back with a lot of expensive equipment, but experienced
problems when they attempt to fish on their own. There's no substitute
for time on the water, so we include instructional time on a pond
and a stream in every school. Developing a good understanding
of strategies and techniques that will be effective in catching
fish is one of the basic fundamentals of fly fishing in New England.
New Hampshire Rivers Guide Service offers the best fly fishing instruction
available in Greater Boston, Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire
at the Northeast Fly Fishing School.
(on the water!)
The LL Bean® Discovery Learn
to Fly Fish School, the Orvis® fly
fishing school and other weekend learn to fly fish instruction
programs are very well known, but are not for everybody. Let
us tell you about our approach.
We want to pass along our many years of experience
and love of fly fishing
We are not here to endorse specific fly fishing equipment. We provide
unbiased information about how to select fly rods, reels, line,
waders and other fly fishing gear. We don't spend a lot of
time talking about brands and models, but provide practical, useful
information. Our experience tells us that casting is only one part
of fly fishing lessons. In Northeast Fly Fishing School you will
not only learn how to fly cast, but where and when to cast.
In our fly fishing lessons you will learn how to identify what trout
eat, how to select flies that match trout food and how to present
the fly in a natural way on a trout stream, not just a casting pond.
We teach you how to "read the water" and learn where trout
hold in a stream, how to approach them and how to cast to where
they will eat your fly.
make great fly fishing gear. Other vendors do too, and often the
best gear for you is not the most expensive. There is no need to
buy any special equipment before you attend our fly fishing school.
All of our fly fishing lessons include time on the water. Fly casting
is taught on our casting pond, but we also teach you fly fishing
on a local trout stream. You will learn by seeing and doing.
You will get personal outdoors fly fishing instruction and not be
in a large class. We give you personal attention that quickly
lets you be effective. Our students enjoy a 1:2 ratio of instructors
per student for the onstream lesson. Don't be "short-changed"
by schools that are only a few hours or a day-long. You receive
a full day of classroom and casting instruction AND a half-day on-the-river
fishing instruction. Our all-inclusive tuition
even includes lunch on Saturday! We even include free loan of waders
and fly rods for the half-day on-the-stream fly fishing lesson!
We make you feel comfortable and won't waste your time.
The Beginner Class is also for those self-taught fly anglers that
want to improve their casting; learn more about insects and choosing
the right fly to match; and improve their presentation and fish-catching
