School begins Friday evening, continues all day Saturday and finishes up Sunday afternoon. This class is suitable for both new fly fishers and those with who would like to increase their existing skill levels.
Classes will take place at the Fly Shop and on our local rivers and lakes. We will provide dinner on Friday, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday and breakfast and lunch on Sunday.
All tackle (rods, reels, lines, leaders and flies) is supplied, or you can use your own. Please bring your own waders. Students will receive a 10% discount on any purchase at the Old AuSable Fly Shop during the class. This class is a hands-on experience. You'll learn by doing. Instruction will be a combination of one-on-one with our instructors and in group session.
All of our instructors are full time guides or shop employees. They all make 100% of their living in the fishing industry. They are all professionals, and this will show throughout the class. We do not have any part time guides or instructors.
There will be an emphasis on casting, an essential part of becoming an effective fly fisher, participants will also have an introduction to rivers – wading, fly presentation, and basic entomology (bugs to most of us).
At the end of the course participants will have the knowledge to:
- Choose appropriate rods, reels, lines, leaders and flies
- Assemble their tackle
- Tie the recommended knots
- Be able to cast a fly and go fishing
Our overall goal for the class is to teach good practices and to help you become effective fly fishers. Accommodation is the responsibility of each student, there are many choices in the Grayling area and we will be happy to make recommendations.
