Todd Tanner has launched a new fly fishing school called School of Trout. It will be held in Last Chance, Idaho, on the banks of the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River, October 7 – 13, 2018. His idea is to teach people the skills of fly fishing, in depth, and to go well beyond the usual cursory overviews so common in this sport. The focus on really learning how to fish—not simply helping people catch a few fish on a guide trip, sets this school apart from others.
I’ll be participating in the school as the head of casting instruction. My aim will be to teach and instill good mechanics, and to provide a thorough understanding of the principles of fly casting. Good fundamentals, an understanding of essential principles, and the additional ability to self-diagnose casting mistakes will provide a solid foundation for any student, allowing them to progress as far in this sport as they like. Todd’s school requires that an application be filled out and accepted. His website provides all the details: School of Trout.
