I had never held a fly rod prior to this class. I had no idea of the ‘aquatic insect’ life. I retired from a career in medicine, and was given this class as a retirement gift. And, Oh what a gift. I have found a new passion. Having “zero” knowledge and skill, Mike, and this class has equipped me to pursue a new phase in life. Over the past 6 months I have caught many trout, with techniques and skill that I had no knowledge of 7 months ago. If you desire to learn to fly fish, you owe it to yourself to take Mike’s classes, and to be ‘infused’ with his personal passion!

Fast Track to Fly Fishing

This was a wonderful class. I learned 10 years of combined information in 2 days from this one class. I highly suggest this for new fly fishers. It will get you out on the rivers ASAP.

Thank You

Mike, Thank You for the valuable info shared with me today regarding ‘wader selection’. As usual, you are my go-to
guy when it comes to getting the right intel on fly fishing………how, where, when, etc.

More than anything, I appreciate knowing that I can stop by, most anytime and you will share the latest news on
where the bite is best.

Fast Track Review

I recently completed NW School of Fly Fishing “Fast Track to Fly Fishing” course and confidently offer my highest recommendation.

Mike shared years of fly-fishing expertise during 35 online videos and 10 hourly face to face sessions based on my availability and desire to learn. The online videos were concise, informative, and easy to understand. The face to face sessions were a combination of presentation, white board drawing, discussion, and hands on demonstration.

Mike taught me the science of fly-fishing including entomology, casting, reading the water, equipment, and more. I graduated his course confident I could get on either a tailwater or freestone river and know exactly how to catch fish. Obviously, I still have to research what the fish are eating; however, Mike also taught me how to do that.

Previously, I have attended two weekend courses with re-known fly-fishing experts and hired a handful of guides for day fly fishing trips. All were beneficial; however, none were as advantageous or as Mike’s Fast Track course.

In short, if you want to get out and fish a couple times per year, the guided trips might be good for you. If you want to learn how to fly fish and be able to get out on your own to enjoy a lifetime of fly-fishing, then take Mike’s Fast Track to Fly Fishing course.
