Do I need to have my own fly rod?
If you do not have one with you or have not purchased one yet, we will supply one for you to use for the lesson.

Can my spouse/friend/child take a lesson with me?
Sure! We can teach one person or a group of anglers. If you have a group, advanced notice is appreciated so we can schedule additional instructors. Group discounts may apply.
