This spring, I am getting two of my kids into fly fishing and we will kick it off by booking them in with an approved Orvis instructor for Fly Fishing 101 in the nearest fly shop. Getting a pro builds good foundations that will make fly fishing an enjoyable sport for years to come.
Fly Fishing can be an intimidating thing for many people. All the gear, flies, knots, waders, and so on can get confusing. The truth is, you can take out a large part of the (for lack of a better word) BS. After all, it’s supposed to be fun! Fly fishing is not just for grandpa, dad, or for uncle Chad. It’s fun for the whole family. If you’re traveling to Yellowstone National Park, visiting Jackson Hole, or simply live in East Idaho stop by one of our shops for our FREE FLY FISHING 101 CLASS!

This spring is the time to finally get into fly fishing, and with Fly Fishing 101 from Orvis, they make it a fun, progressive, and easy learning experience.
In the most recent Fly Fishing 101 Class, we recruited head guide Doug Gibson and senior guide Cliff Weisse to teach the basics to two classes of 10 promising anglers. These two Orvis Endorsed fly fishing guides are some of the best and most knowledgeable fly fishing guides in the business. I’ve even heard one of our new guides say, “I have a list of people I’ve wanted to fish with, Doug is one of them.”
