Single Hand & Two Hand / Spey Private & Group Instruction: 

Rick Whorwood is a Federation Of Fly Fisher Certified:
CCI, MCI & THCI Instructor

Single hand lessons will be based on an hourly rate and designed to meet your needs from beginner to advanced fly casting. Rick's programs are designed to cover all the basics - Roll-Cast, Over Head Cast, Belgian Cast, Dealing with Wind, Accuracy, Double Haul, Distance, and more.
Coaching is a part of every sport, and so it is with fly casting. Maybe just adding a few extra yards of distance to make your next Tarpon trip a success, or perhaps presenting a dry fly more effectively on a mountain stream. Rick will help you improve your fishing ability and he can design a course to focus and improve on your specific needs.

Spey casting lessons will be based on 4 hours and are designed to meet your needs, from beginner to advanced. The 4-hour programs are designed to tweak and hone the experienced angler as well as help you get started in spey casting / fishing. This is a great program to take prior to spending money on equipment. We will supply rods / reels, etc. and you'll finish the program with a complete understanding on everything spey! Rick works with local shops and will put together a list of equipment and suggestions that will make your day on the river more pleasurable.

Guided Trips

Rainbow Trout, Steelhead, Brown Trout, and Bass; we will target these different species in season. We start in early spring and guide until freeze-up in the fall.
