By Fly Rod Shop

At The Fly Rod Shop, they offer a variety of both fly fishing and spin fishing instructional classes along with multiple options for guided fishing adventures. They encourage first time fly fisherman to take a free casting clinic at the shop where they go over the basic equipment for fly fishing and techniques needed to master the sport.

The guided trips take place on the surrounding rivers such as the Lamoille, Winooski, Dog, and Little River. If you prefer lake fishing they offer guided tours in our boats out of Lake Elmore, the Waterbury Reservoir and Lake Eden.
