Fly Fishing Classes
Many times we have heard people say… "I'd like to try that sometime, I want to learn to fly fish!" We are absolutely dedicated to helping every angler that has ever made that statement.
We teach with a fun and simple style at Red's University of Fly Fishing. While we are very serious about fly fishing and our programs are of the highest quality, we have not forgotten that it is supposed to be fun! Fly casting, reading a river, and selecting the right fly do not have to be complicated to be effective.
No Angler Left Behind
The Introduction Series is composed of Fly Fishing 101, 201, and 301. These classes are all designed around three important components, fun, simplicity and value! To sign up, just give us a call and we will get you started on the path to success.
Our incredible fly shop and riverside campus is at Canyon River Ranch located 2 hours east of Seattle on the Blue Ribbon Yakima River in famous Lower Canyon. It is 13 miles south of Ellensburg, Washington. The drive is very scenic. The nearest major airport is Sea-tac, but there is a small airport in Yakima about 30 minutes from the lodge.
To get started you don't need to have any gear. We supply the fly rods and reels for all of our core classes. All you need is a smile, sack lunch, and enthusiasm! After we teach you how to fly fish, then decide if purchasing a fly rod and fishing gear is the right decision.
