GPFF Foundational Seminar


Grizzly Peak Fly Fishers is dedicated to the ongoing education in the art, science, and sport of fly fishing.  One of our annual programs is the GPFF Foundational Fly Fishing Seminar.  Typically, offered in the fall, the seminar provides the entry through intermediate level anglers everything they need to know about the sport, including: Essential Equipment needed, Knots & Leaders, Casting, Stream water reading, Entomology, Fish Identification & Fly use, Landing and Releasing Fish and more.


This is NOT a ‘survey’ course, it is a full, comprehensive course that will give you the confidence and preparedness to move forward productively in the sport. 


What you get:  A bound 50 page, full-color course text, with plenty of lined pages for taking notes.  Some Starter Tools, Knot tying materials, Practice Casting Leader & False Fly and a ‘made-to-order’ Deli sandwich, chips and drink.  Additionally, you will be assigned a ‘mentor’ that you can contact at any time for help and advice.  You’ll get a coveted Grizzly Peak Certificate of Completion upon graduation (suitable for framing).


What to bring:  Rod, reel & fly line, (casting leaders are supplied with false casting fly).  Sunglasses (or some sort of glasses) for eye protection safety, a hat is recommended.  IF you don’t have a rig, NO problem.  Simply, let us know and we will have a club loaner available, rigged & ready for you for the event.  Our coaches have decades of experience and will be working with you at your current level to help you develop the foundations you need to build on.
