Course Description

This comprehensive four-hour introductory course will teach you the basics of fly casting in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Our expert 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.

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.
