Type Of Class:


If you have always wanted to try fly fishing but haven’t found the time, we are here to make it happen; we love to share our passion for the wonderful sport of fly fishing. Every year we take great pride in seeing our students embark on their own adventures in fly fishing. Our one-day introductory course will walk you through the ins and outs of pursuing fish on a fly and memories that will last a lifetime. We are firm believers that in fly fishing one is never finished learning and this course is designed to set you on your way.


9:30am - meet at our shop in downtown Calgary. Here you will learn about the essential equipment and how to set it up. Flies and basic entomology will be covered, as well as knots indispensable to every angler.
12:30 - break for lunch (participants are responsible for your own lunch during our 1 hour break)
1:30 - reconvene at Shouldice Park in Bowness for our afternoon of dryland casting, reading the water and a demonstration.
4:30 - our classes generally finish up. Having said this if you have more questions we are happy to stay longer to ensure that all your questions are answered.


We provide all the equipment needed for the day and every participant receives our Intro to Fly Fishing booklet. This gives you the opportunity to better understand exactly what equipment will suite your needs.
To ensure everyone receives adequate instruction we do our best to limit our instructor to participant ratio to 1:6.


We run our beginner courses an average of twice a month starting the end of April until the end of September.
