Small Trout and Big Adventure

There are numerous small streams within a reasonable drive of Red's Fly Shop that we can show you. Our team will teach you how, where, and when to fish various tributaries in our area.  These streams are beautiful and located on public land.

You will improve both your skill and knowledge all in once course. Most of the time the instructor will arrange for students to caravan to a parking area in the vicinity and that way after class you can enjoy a full day of fly fishing in the area.

Where are We Going?

Some classes will have a pre-designated destination, while others will be "guide's choice" and they will take you to the destination they feel will offer the best adventure for that given day.  Once on the stream they will mentor while fishing and helping you learn to become a better small stream fisherman.
