The combination of the classroom instruction and on-the-water guided practice makes this one of the most unique and economical fly-fishing schools available in our area.

The cost of the school (which includes lunch on Saturday) is $125 for adults and $75 for students (ages 10 and older). Equipment for the class will also be provided.
