Introductory Fly Fishing Schools with Jim and Lynda McLennan, Alberta's most experienced instructors
These schools are for folks who are:
Total beginners.
Folks who have been given equipment and are ready to put it to good use.
Folks who have been spin or regular fishing for a number of years and want to move to the fly fishing world.
Folks who used to fish and now want to get back into using that equipment hidden in the closet.
Folks who have fished for some time but have never taken any lessons. This school will fill in the blanks and make their days on the river more enjoyable.
Parents who are wanting to introduce their children (10/11 years old +) to their world of fly fishing. Come and share the day.

What to expect: An understanding of:
Fly fishing equipment.
