Beginner or beyond, this is the place for you. For two days you will tie various flies, building foundational tying techniques. Bring your vise and tools for a very hands-on experience with real-time coaching from your instructors. You’ll walk away with flies to chase trout in Montana and other waters.

Women’s Fly Fishing Workshop: Thursday & Friday, 8:00 to 5:00 PM (Insert workshop number & page) is for all women anglers, beginner/intermediate/advanced. Each day, the program begins in the classroom with instructors who are passionate, female fly fishers and then moves to some prime water, fly rod in hand, to reinforce the skills and concepts learned in the classroom. Our vast pool of experienced and accomplished instructors will support all students, helping each to grow in the pursuit of the pleasures of fishing. Limited to 16 registrants.
Experience All Things Fly Fishing! Join fly fishing experts Wednesday and Thursday, August 2 & 3 for two full days of fly fishing instruction.
This unique opportunity will help you to further develop your proficiency and knowledge of fly fishing. Students ruther their skills in fly casting, knot tying, identifying food items trout eat, and learning appropriate flies to match the hatch and other fishing situations. Four methods of fly fishing will be covered: wet fly, dry fly, nymph, and streamer and there will be on-water instruction and fly fishing adventure!
We are committed to ensuring that this will be a growth experience for each participant with one instructor per every three students. You will increase your fly fishing bag of tricks, become better anglers, and have the opportunity to catch more fish in the process - and don't forget, having fun as well. The group will be fishing a variety of water in the Livingston area.
Open to all Intermediate skill level fly anglers including men, women and youth 14 and older. See the workshop listing to sign up, limited to the first 12 registrants.
