Fly Fishing Tours

      • Our most popular program here at The Fly Rod Shop is our instructional fly fishing tours. This program will start off here at the shop where you will be fitted for boots and waders if you don’t already have them, and beginners will have a short casting lesson on our trout pond to learn both the roll cast and false cast. One of our experienced guides will then take you to one of our many fishing spots where you will learn the techniques as you fish! Your guide will show you how and where to make the perfect cast, how to mend the line, how to get a great drift, and most importantly, where to find the fish!
      • You will also be shown the different types of aquatic insects that can be found in the river and how to choose a fly that best matches what the fish want to eat. Depending on the fishing location you could possibly catch Rainbow Trout, Brook Trout, Brown Trout, and Smallmouth Bass. All of the gear will be provided by The Fly Rod Shop unless you wish to bring your own.
      • These trips are available in both half days (4hrs) and full days (8hrs). Whether you are just learning how to fly fish or you are simply looking for a local to show you some great spots, sign up for an instructional trip today!
