Winter Fly Fishing
December 18, 2020 * January 29, 2021 * February 26, 2021

In this introductory course we will learn the basics of fly fishing, casting, and rigging, as well as some tips-and-tricks to keep your fly rods in use during the icier months. We will spend time discussing some of the incredible behaviors our fish exhibit to adapt to the frigid winter months, and how you can successfully target these behaviors to land fish all year long. We can’t promise you’ll catch a fish, but you will leave this program with the skills and knowledge to continue your pursuit of fly fishing and hopefully put a few fish in the net!

** If you wish to fish at the end of this course, you will need to possess a valid Montana Fishing license. (Licenses can be purchased online at
