A) Learn how to fly fish:
We offer a comprehensive fly fishing "crash" course for anglers at all skill levels. Course instruction will focus on tackle/equipment review, hands-on fly casting, wading, on-water demonstrations, fishing methods and strategy; knot and leader formulas, fly coordination and fish behavior. Both full and half day courses are available. Full day outing includes a float trip to allow you to practice your skills over productive waters.
Let us help you get started or fine tune your abilities on our local waters. We will lead you to becoming an accomplished fly fisher. All gear provided by Trinity Fly Shop if desired. Course is limited to a maximum of 3 anglers per guide. Fly fishing is a great sport that takes practice but the rewards are fantastic. Many relate the sport as "the experience of a lifetime."

That's right. One is never too young to learn! We have designed a fun-to-learn elementary fly fishing course especially for youths 8 years and up. These 1-day courses include a float down the river, highlighting the day, and possibly freeing up time for the parents to focus on their fly fishing as well.

Our Entomology class is just for you - everything you ever wanted to know about aquatic insects but were afraid to ask. We offer full day entomology field trips to our favorite rich and fertile waters to help you learn, experience (hands-on identification) and cultivate a thorough understanding of the basic aquatics, underwater food chain, and eliminate the guess work with fly selections. Entomology field trips are geared for easy understanding and structured to allow all angling levels. The information you gain in these courses will help you to advance to successful fly fishing.
