What to Expect: Specifics for Guiding and/or Instructions for Fly Fishing with a Master Naturalist
Angler Level of Experience:
Advanced: During this outing, we will only troubleshoot if needed (help you adjust to our area)*. You will enjoy your time in the water in peace and quiet as we invisibly watch from a distance. Intermediate:
On this outing, we will instruct only when requested and troubleshoot if fishing is slow*. You will enjoy your day in the water in solitude as we stay at a distance the majority of the time.Beginner/Novice: We will select the water suitable for your level. We will include casting instructions/adjustments, reading the water, understanding structure, air and water temperatures, water flows, seasonal patterns, fly selection and more. We will stay at your side most of the time but move away for a while if you feel a need to practice and work out any issues on your own.*For the Advanced and Intermediate Anglers, everything under Beginner/Novice will gladly be included if you wish.
