We are happy to help people get started in fly fishing. We rent equipment for people who want to try before they buy, but good quality outfits (rod, reel, backing, line, and leader) can be purchased beginning at $150. We sometimes offer free "Fly Fishing 101" classes. These are 1-2 hours at the store usually on a summer Saturday. Just enough information to get you started. Some people who want a very personalized experience will hire a guide for a half or full day to give them 1:1 instruction on the water.
