The Red Fox Outfitters Fly Fishing 101 Course will cover the very basics of fly fishing. This course is intended for those with little to no fly fishing experience or for someone who is looking to get back in to the sport.  The casting portion of the class is held on the banks of the Shiawassee.  The classes are limited to 4 people per class to ensure focused attention from the instructor. All Equipment is provided.  No Fishing License required.  Eye protection (sunglasses) strongly recommended.   Class length is about 2 hours.  Some of the basics covered will include…

  • The parts of a simple fly fishing outfit
  • How to put a rod together
  • Basic knots
  • Types of flies
  • How to cast
  • How to read a river

Upon completion of this class, a Trout Unlimited Membership will be given out and also some Orvis coupons for gear at the shop! Space is limited, so reserve your space today!

If the class is to be canceled due to weather related circumstances, you will be notified via email and/or telephone.
