Course Description

In this two-day course, our expert L.L.Bean instructors will gladly offer you a fishing education that would take years and years to acquire on your own. Absorb a wealth of knowledge and accumulated angling wisdom while learning all the skills a fly-fishing enthusiast needs to excel out on the water. You'll learn and practice casting techniques, strategies for reading and wading in moving water, knot tying, fly tying, fish fighting and landing, catch and release and fly-fishing safety and etiquette.

Rest assured, you'll receive plenty of individual attention and coaching while you fish on a stocked pond for a variety of fish species.

All necessary fly-fishing 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 deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.

‡You can purchase a temporary fishing license at L.L.Bean's Hunting & Fishing Store in Freeport, ME. You can also obtain a license or find more information on licensing at https://www.maine.gov/ifw/fishing-boating/fishing/licenses-permits/index.html
