Licensed NH Fly Fishing Guide

Professional fly fishing guide

 

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.

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.

LL Bean and Orvis 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. We provide FREE LOAN of all gear, including rods, reels, flies, waders and boots.  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 low 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 success.
