Fly Casting Lessons

Introduction to Fly Fishing and Casting 4 Hour on River Course


A Complete Introduction to Fly Fishing Have you ever dreamed of standing on the edge of a river, silently casting a hand tied fly to an unsuspecting fish? This course gives youth and adults a complete introduction to the fly fishing experience. Our goal is to simplify fly fishing techniques and demystify the sport as well as create a fun learning environment where all questions have merit. 

Fly Water Guiding is located on the Exceptional Waters section of the Middle Grand River.

Middle Grand and Tributaries, Many cold water tributaries enter the main stem of the Grand River in this area, creating cold water refuges for trout  and excellent rearing habitat. A couple of the major tributaries we fish are Whitemans Creek and the Nith River. Both of these tributaries are host to large runs of Steelhead, and support resident populations of Rainbow and Brown Trout. The Nith River is also host to an abundant population of Small Mouth Bass and is excellent sport during the summer months.
