Learn to Fly Fish for FREE with the Blue Quill Angler
Have you wanted to learn how to fly fish or at least give it a try to see if you would like it but did not want to commit a ton of money just to find out that it was boring or way too complicated? The Blue Quill Angler FREE Saturday Introduction to Fly Fishing Class is your answer.
Since the Blue Quill opened its doors in 1988 as a specialty fly fishing shop, we built into the mission statement to introduce as many people as possible to this incredible sport absolutely FREE. There are no hidden fees or strings attached to this deal. All you have to do is show up on Saturday morning at the shop and things will get started shortly thereafter.
Over the last 24 years, we have had several thousand people participate in the FREE class as a complete introduction to the sport or as a refresher to get ready for the upcoming fishing season. The FREE class covers the basics necessary to confidently send you to the river, some heading out right after class and landing their first trout on a fly rod.
The FREE class covers the following:
How to rig your rod, including leader, tippet, and knots.
How to select the right fly for each season
The basics of fly casting
How to hook, play, and release a trout.
When class is over, you can rent a rod and reel, a pair of waders and boot if you do not own all the gear, get legal with a Colorado One Day Fishing License for $9.00 and head over to Clear Creek or down to Bear Creek and apply those newly learned skills in a real world situation.
