Beginning Fly Fishing – Clackamas River

Start fly fishing with good fundamentals and fun! This introduction to fly fishing for trout is held on the Clackamas River. It’s a great course for the beginner or fun for the whole family. It also makes a great gift!

Here’s how it works…

Your 6-hour class is held at McIver Park in Estacada, Oregon.

Here we give hands-on instruction covering a wide range of topics like rigging, fly casting, a study on bugs and what fish like to eat, and fly fishing techniques. A get-started class information packet is included for you to take home, and we will actually get you on the water to fish for trout and coach you towards fly fishing success.
