Course Description

This comprehensive three-hour course teaches you the basics of fly casting in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Our skilled instructors will guide you, step-by-step, through the four-part cast, false cast and roll cast. We'll explain how to strip and shoot line, as well as how to tie basic fishing knots. You'll receive plenty of one-on-one instruction and have ample time to practice each skill with an instructor and on your own. You'll finish this course with an excellent foundation of fly-casting knowledge.

All necessary fly-casting equipment is provided. Please note this course does not include fishing time on the water.

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 deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.

Intro to fly casting
Excellent, great for a beginner. Covers all the basics in casting and knots. Starting out with "good habits" is the way to go!
