Northeast Fly Fishing School®
Lately, we have been getting a lot of clients who went to a "Brand
Name Fly Fishing School" for a weekend and became frustrated
when they came back with a lot of expensive equipment, but experienced
problems when they attempt to fish on their own. There's no substitute
for time on the water, so we include instructional on a stream in
every school. Developing a good understanding of strategies and
techniques that will be effective in catching fish is one of the
basic fundamentals of fly fishing in New England. New Hampshire
Rivers Guide Service offers the best fly fishing instruction available
in Greater Boston, Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire at the
Northeast Fly Fishing School.

The LL Bean® Discovery Learn
to Fly Fish School, the Orvis® fly
fishing school and other weekend learn to fly fish instruction
programs are very well known, but are not for everybody. Let
us tell you about our approach.
We want to pass along our many years of experience
and love of fly fishing
don't endorse specific fly fishing equipment. We provide unbiased
information about how to select fly rods, reels, line, waders and
other fly fishing gear. We don't spend a lot of time talking
about brands and models, but provide practical, useful information.
Our experience tells us that casting is only one part of fly fishing
lessons. In Northeast Fly Fishing School you will not only learn
how to fly cast, but where and when to cast. In our fly fishing
lessons you will learn how to identify what trout eat, how to select
flies that match trout food and how to present the fly in a natural
way on a trout stream, not just a casting pond. We teach you how
to "read the water" and learn where trout hold in a stream,
how to approach them and how to cast to where they will eat your
make great fly fishing gear. Other vendors do too, and often the
best gear for you is not the most expensive. There is no need to
buy any special equipment before you attend our fly fishing school.
We provide FREE LOAN of all gear, including rods, reels, flies,
waders and boots. All of our fly fishing lessons include time
on the water. We teach you fly fishing on a local trout stream.
You will learn by seeing and doing. You will get personal outdoors
fly fishing instruction and not be in a large class. We give
you personal attention that quickly lets you be effective. Our students
enjoy a low ratio of instructors per student. Don't be "short-changed"
by schools that are only a few hours. You receive access to
professionally produced instructional videos prior to AND after
your class AND a full-day on-the-river fishing instruction. We even
include free loan of waders and fly rods for the full-day on-the-stream
fly fishing lesson! We make you feel comfortable and won't waste
The Beginner Class is also for those self-taught Intermediate-level
fly anglers that want to improve their casting; learn more about
insects and choosing the right fly to match; and improve their presentation
and fish-catching success.
