ANGLER Education


What to learn how to fly fish? Great!

We highly recommend you attend an introduction to fly fishing clinic. A number of organizations, including our club, offer free clinics in our area!

We also have our Get Hooked on Fly Fishing series of clinics aimed at helping active fly fishers become proficient at catching fish. Check our calendar to see what's happening.

There's also tons of educational videos available which can get you started. Note that some of these videos might be made in hopes of selling you stuff, stuff you don't necessarily need. We recommend beginners consult with one of our mentors for advice on what, if anything, you should acquire. The club has beginners kits you can borrow to get started.

Practice!  Fish as often as you can, especially with others you can learn from. Attend our fish outs! Ask for mentoring!
