3-Day Fly Fishing Seminars

Our 3-Day Fly Fishing Seminars are some of the most comprehensive fly fishing schools in the country. The focus of the 3-Day program is fly casting, starting with the basics and building up to the advanced. In addition, we offer workshops on entomology, reading the water, knot tying, equipment, and more.

Antelope Creek Lodge in the shadow of Mt. Shasta is our instruction campus and the classroom includes miles of private stream, and two pristine lakes. All equipment, meals, lodging, instruction, and full use of the angling options at the ranch are included in our clinics.

Graduates of our 3-day Seminars feel confident they can successfully tackle any fishing scenario.
