Fly Fishing Lessons and Classes
Learning how to cast a fly rod can be very frustrating. Let one of our Professional guides/teachers get you started on the right foot. Be it a lesson, class or guide trip we'll have casting like-a-pro in no time. We also offer advanced casting instruction for those looking to advance their skill set or learn new technique.

Casting Lessons
If you are looking to get just a hint of what fly fishing is all about, consider a casting lesson. Animas Valley Anglers offers individual casting lessons and instruction.

Basic One Hour Lesson covers: Basic casting and line control.

Two Hour Lesson covers: Basic casting, roll casting, line control, knots, river safety, gear and basic fly selection.

This is a great way to get a feel for the sport and start you on the path of fly fishing. Casting lessons are also a good idea before you take one of our regional guide trips. However, our guide trips include casting instruction for first-timers and novice anglers.

Casting lessons can be booked year-round. During the busiest times of the guide season (March through October) casting lessons will be available based on guide and instructor availability. Evenings and mornings maybe the only available times

Casting Lessons do not include: customary gratuity for the instructor.

Casting Lessons
