Lessons

Have a interest in fly fishing? If so take a lesson with us. We'll go over rods-reels-lines and how to rig your gear. Learn knots along with fly selection and types of water. Classes generally run four hours. We may even have time to put your new skills to work on the water.

I like to limit classes to two students but can accommodate up to four.

Instruction is $150.00 per student.

MUSKY

   The James and Shenandoah are both Musky water. Being a fish that likes cool water they are most active durning the coldest months of the year. The months we target musky are October to March. They do make you pay your dues but when it all comes together it will make you weak in the knees!

 

Smallmouth

  The James and Shenandoah Rivers are both know for their aggressive smallmouth and fishing. The James' numerous islands, bolder fields, rock gardens and clay banks give us the opportunity to boat fish up to and over 20 inches.

  The Shenandoah is a fly fisherman's dream. Pebble bottoms,ledges, grass beds and under cut banks will find smallmouth ready to attack your offering. 

  The best months to target smallmouth are  mid March through December.

  Our boats are white water rafts set up for anglers comfort and safety. Each boat can easily accommodate two anglers and their guide.

  Afternoon trips are generally run from 3 pm till dusk. On these trips you will be fishing from the jet boat.

  We provide any and/or all gear that is needed along with lunch,snacks,water and sport drinks. All skill levels are welcome.
