We were pretty bummed to have to postpone some of our spring classes. So, lets try something new! We’re going to offer some one-on-one video classes. Casting, knot tying, fly tying, what would you like to learn? Classes will be $30/hour and can be scheduled at your convenience. Looking to up your tying game with some new patterns, we can help. We can also mail out materials in advance so you have what you need to tie some new patterns. Or maybe you just want to take your tablet out in the yard one sunny afternoon and have us help you fine tune your cast, we can do that too. Let us know what you want to learn and we’ll help you get there. Email or message us to get started. $30/hr


Take our in-depth course, and get familiar with the basics of fly fishing. On Wednesday and Thursday, from 7-9 in the shop, we’ll cover gear, flies, knots and more. Then on Saturday from 10-2, we’ll meet in River Falls WI and practice casting, spotting fish, reading water, and identifying bugs. Class includes time for fishing. All gear is provided for class. Please wear water-friendly pants and shoes on Saturday. $120
