Entry Level Trout Fishing  
Because of its unique location, The Fly Fishing Shop is able to offer high quality fly fishing schools. Our shop boasts the most complete indoor fly fishing classroom on the west coast of North America.  Our instructors are second to none in their dedication and understanding of the sport of fly fishing. The schools offered on this page are designed to teach students how to fly fish for trout at the most basic level. Topics covered will be: equipment selection, fly casting, knot tying, hatch identification, fly selection, reading the water, stalking fish, fly presentation, and how to land fish. Fishing schools will be conducted where there are abundant populations of native, wild trout.
The Entry Level Fly Casting School is designed to fit perfectly with our Entry Level Trout Fishing School, so that both schools can be accomplished during a two day period. Sign up for the Crash Course Mega School and Save $100. Both schools taken during consecutive days teach "how" and "why" things work the way they do, so that they will more easily be remembered. This continually reinforces the new skills as they are being acquired.

Fly Fishing School, Entry Level Trout Fishing

8:00am - Dark
Ratio: One Instructor/Guide per 2-3 students

Float the Deschutes River with your guide/instructor.
A wise man once said, "You can more easily figure out "how" if you can figure out "why". During the Entry Level Trout Fishing School we will unlock the secrets of how to catch trout with flies, and also why the methods work the way they do.
There will be a leisurely car ride to the lower Deschutes River. You will enjoy the ever-changing scenery as you cross the Cascade Mountains from the rain-forest to the desert. In a little over and hour you will arrive at the Deschutes River where a roomy drift boat will be launched for a safe ride down the river. Your Instructor/Guide will stop the boat periodically, and you will continue your trout fishing education. 
In order to catch a trout with a fly, several things have to happen in a certain sequential order. First you have to locate a fish. Then you have to approach the fish in a stealthy manner. Then you have to present your fly in a manner that will convince the fish to eat it. After the fish eats the fly you have to figure out how to land it. It helps if before you throw the winning cast that you have figured out what the fish is likely to eat, and mapped out a plan of action for landing the fish, before the fish is actually hooked.
Your Instructor/Guide is an expert trout hunter. He will explain where trout live and why they live there. Then you will collect examples of what trout foods are active during your time on the water. Your Instructor/Guide will demonstrate how to get into position to make the perfect presentations that will enable you to catch trout with both floating and sunk flies. All the while you are attending class, you will be learning the art of observation, so you can enjoy the process of fly fishing even more.  If you are attentive and diligent during this class you will catch fish.
