Course Description

In just a few hours with our expert fishing instructors, you'll learn the fundamentals of fly fishing – the four-part cast, hook setting, fish fighting and landing, fly-fishing etiquette and safety. After practicing these skills, you'll fish for a variety of species in our private pond while our guides offer friendly advice about the most effective techniques for enticing fish to your fly. They'll also gladly offer first-hand insights about the best fishing locations in your area and around the world.

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.
