Where do instruction classes take place?
Basic Instruction is primarily conducted on dry land in a park setting and is a true outdoor experience. Fly casting is a foundation building block that gets you 1/3 of the way along to becoming a successful fly angler whether in
rivers, streams, ponds, lakes (like Lake Sidney Lanier), or even saltwater if you want to fly fish for species such as Redfish, Bonefish, Sea Trout, and Permit.
The location for Metro Atlanta clients is along the Chattahoochee River north of I-285. There's plenty of casting room and the river is a stroll away from the parking area. The park has great bathrooms and eateries are located nearby. Directions where to meet initially will be emailed following a class reservation.
Fly Fishing Instruction classes begin on dry land and can extend to the real world on public or private North Georgia waters.
Combo "Refresher + On-Water" fly fishing classes get you out for a day on private water that includes great fly fishing at one of North Georgia's most productive trout streams; or, on North
Georgia public trout water.
Instruction on Lake Lanier
Lake Sidney Lanier is also an instruction location. Beautiful scenery either overlooking the lake from one of the many park locations; or, on the lake from a bay/flats boat while chasing Stripers and Spotted Bass near Cumming,
GA (Cumming is located on the west side of the lake about 35 minutes due north of Atlanta).
For saltwater anglers, becoming familiar with a flats boat before you go on a saltwater trip (especially if you have never been on one) can be done right here in North Georgia.
