Course Description

There are few things more rewarding than watching a trout rise to your fly. It's an experience you don't want to miss. Our course offers you a great opportunity to try fly casting in a friendly and supportive environment. After brief introductions and safety talk, you'll learn the components of a fly-rod outfit. Then our experienced instructors, who've acquired a wealth of fishing and casting knowledge over the years, will teach you the four-part cast, false cast and roll cast – foundational skills on which to build more advanced casting techniques. You'll also have ample time to practice your skills with our instructors, so you can confidently cast on your own.

All necessary fly-casting equipment is provided.

L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any time due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.


†Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it's demed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
