Fly Fishing 101 Class at Red's Fly Shop

Ever seen A River Runs Through It? Or met someone who is simply crazy about fly fishing – a real fly fishing addict? Ever thought, “I’d like to try that!” Well, this is your chance to find out what all the excitement is about. Fly Fishing 101 is a survey of our sport, an informative, hands-on stream-side introduction into the world of fly fishing and fly casting.  It is fun, low pressure, and makes a great starter class or review for rusty anglers.

Learn What Trout Eat!




Basic Fly Casting

With conventional spin fishing, effective casting depends on the weight on the end of the line. Fly fishing is different. Fly casting works because the weight in the middle moves the fly to the target. Once a student understands this, casting is easy!

Getting Connected

Understanding a few basic knots is all that is needed to go fly fishing. We go over the knots you need and tie them together. If knots are not your thing, you really only need one (the easiest) and you are good to go!

Reading Trout Rivers

We cover reading a river to understand where to cast. Fish congregate in certain areas to feed, regardless of how expansive a river is. Once you understand this, you can read any river and catch fish anywhere.


Canyon River Grill  - Our spectacular new restaurant opened this past year!  It is the perfect way to end your fly fishing classes at Red's Fly Shop.

Beginning Fly Fishing Basics

The essence of fly fishing is presenting (casting) the right fly in just the right way to a hungry fish, fooling him into thinking your fly is really a tasty meal – one he just can’t resist! That’s fly fishing in a nut shell and in this class, we’ll show you how it’s done and get you started. By the way, anglers fly fish for everything from stream born trout to giant 100 lb. tarpon cruising tropical lagoons. In this course, we focus on rainbow trout primarily in streams.

We begin by introducing you to the trout’s world: what a trout is, where they live in the river and why. Next  we talk about food that what trout eat and actually go on a “bug hunt” stream side to find and identify the critters: they’re awesome! Then explain what a “fly” is, and show you how “flies” imitate trout food. Together, we compare real bugs to artificial ones (flies) and show you how to “match the hatch“  by selecting the best imitation to present to hungry trout.
