Maine Fishing Adventure’s Fly Fishing Boot Camp is a two day school for those who’ve always been intrigued by fly fishing but don’t know where to start, or for those who have started and want to learn more. My goal is to give you the skills you need to really enjoy fly fishing.
We’ll cover basic fly casting, basic entomology (think bugs – AKA fish food!), basic water reading (how to determine where the fish are), basic knots, gear and fly selections and how to handle fish for catch and release. We will cover a lot of ground in just two days. Class size will be no more than four people.
Lunch will be included and lodging can be arranged.
If you wish, each evening we can sit around the campfire, discuss what you’ve learned, tell stories and share a beverage or two if you’re so inclined.
If you’ve read the section about me you’ll know how much I stress fun – and this course is no exception. Don’t be fooled by the “Boot Camp” title – this is a NO- STRESS zone! As with our fishing trips, if we’re not laughing and grinning all day we’ve gotten it wrong!
So – if you’re looking for a pain-free, stress free, enjoyable way to enter the world of fly fishing – welcome to Boot Camp!
