Learn how to make the most of your precious time on the water in this focused workshop for advanced-beginner and intermediate fly-fishing anglers. After a review of casting basics, you’ll spend your day on the waters learning and practicing casting techniques with roving one-on-one instruction tailored to your experience level. Even experienced fly anglers will benefit from reinforced basic skills and this organized introduction to advanced techniques. Your time will be spent on the water learning not only about casting but also the wonders of Yellowstone stream and riparian ecosystems—and the challenges they face.
