The Beginner Fly Fishing Seminar is an introduction to fly fishing in YNP, and it will cover the basic skills necessary for you to fly fish for trout confidently in mountain environments. You will start with equipment setup and continue through fly fishing techniques needed for a successful day of fishing. You'll also discuss wilderness safety and environmental stewardship. The seminar will include three instructors to provide you with individual instruction as needed.
We love continuing to learn about fly fishing, and we hope that you will too! You have the privilege to experience together some of the most beautiful trout waters this country has to offer. Think of it, learning to fly fish in Yellowstone National Park.
