Northern Vermont's Finest Fly Fishing Guide Service and Fly Fishing Gear Retailer!


Are you thinking about picking up fly fishing, or has it just been a few years since your last cast? Either way, the FREE casting clinics offered here at The Fly Rod Shop will prepare you to get out on the river this fishing season. The class will start off inside the shop where you will learn about the different equipment, the flies, and the basic anatomy of a stream. Before long we will step outside onto The Fly Rod Shop pond and learn both the false cast, and the roll cast. As you are learning the needed techniques our experienced staff will be walking around the pond to help you learn to make the perfect cast.

The class will also cover things such as shooting line, and how to still make great casts in tight spaces and even when there is wind. All gear is provided by The Fly Rod Shop or you are welcome to bring your own if you have it.
