The experience was great. We rented two guided tour boats for 1/2 day trout fly fishing for total of $550 + gratitude. Their schedule was flexible to avoid a storm in later afternoon. The only drawback I have with 3 stars instead of 4 or 5 is the extra $51.58 charges that appeared after 5 days. It did not have any detailed description and when I called they said for flies and leader lines we used. It’s in the fine print. I am changing my credit card number now because I am paranoid of charges that I don’t have control of. I wish they are more transparent.

On the web page before you book the trip, it states flies and leaders are extra. After the trip is booked you get a confirmation email that state flies and leaders are extra.

Went into the store looking for some general knowledge about the best places to fish for brookies in town and was given some great tips and also walked out with some amazing flies.

This two day course gives you the basics you will need to get started with fly fishing. The instructors are knowledgable and have a sincere passion for this sport. There is a good mix of classroom time and practice opportunities. Jim, Mike S., Mike D., and Tyler worked well together to bring participants up to speed quickly. Helpful feedback from instructors aided me in understanding how to improve my casting while on my own at home. I would recommend this course to beginners - it's an effective overview of what you need to get out in the water. The course runs out of the shop, which is great because you can see the gear right there. Dave Leonhard runs a great shop. Very happy with my experience and I'm looking forward to fishing this summer!

Fastest paced "2 hour block of instruction" I have been in. Great presentation and the education is of great value to any beginner fly fisherman.

The owner, Dave Leonhard, will make sure that you get the right gear, right flies, right advice; and, if you want instructions, great instructions. (He is the only FFF Certified Master Casting Instructor in TC, and one of a very few in the state.) Just one of his free Wednesday evening WE’RE GOIN’ FISHIN’ sessions on the river taught me so much that I can't wait to fish again.
