Western Rivers Flyfisher is pleased to offer a dry-fly specific class that will take your dry fly game to the next level. For many fly-fishers, watching a trout rise to a well presented dry fly is the “zenith” of our sports many experiences. It is also a technique that requires fly anglers to very aware of their surroundings, be proficient at fly-casting, understand the weather, and have the ability to “read” the river conditions in order to have consistent success. This class is designed to show the fun and importance of being able to fish a dry fly, and focused on teaching anyone and everyone how to successfully do it!

The class will consist of three class sessions that are systematically designed to introduce you to the necessary information, and skills needed to effectively fish dry flies to rising fish. The first session of the class will take place from 6:30 PM-8:45 PM. We will meet at the shop to talk about the basic entomology knowledge needed to be able to effectively identify what aquatic insects are hatching, how weather impacts the hatch and your fly choice, and discuss what essential gear is required. For the second class session, we meet up at Sugarhouse Park to work on tuning up students fly-casting, and introduce essential "fishing casts". The third session of the class takes place with a half-day trip to a local river where you learn how to fish these flies under the watchful eye of a friendly and competent instructor.

If you have ever wanted to learn how to fish a dry fly, or want to learn how to do it better, then this is the class for you! Sign-up for the class by calling the shop, or stopping by in person.
