There’s simply no better way to immerse yourself in fly fishing than to spend a weekend learning from a guide. The Gates AuSable Lodge weekend fly-fishing school will help make you a better fly angler! We teach self-sufficiency on the water. Our goal is that when you finish our weekend school, you’ll be able to go fly-fishing on your own! Check in is Friday, August 3rd. Participants will meet at 8 a.m. on Saturday morning for breakfast, followed by a morning lesson in fly-casting. After lunch, it’s time to hit the river and learn the ins and outs of dry fly fishing. The evening is yours to enjoy (which more than likely will mean more fishing!) Sunday morning will once again begin at 8 a.m. with breakfast, followed by time on the river, first with a little dry fly fishing if the trout are rising, and then with a comprehensive class on fishing wet flies and nymphs. This is the best value and the best instruction that you’ll find anywhere.
Participants should bring waders (rentals are available, fly-rods (rentals are available), and as much of their own gear as possible. Bug dope, multiple layers including rain-jacket, sunglasses and sunscreen are all recommended.
