Fly fishing should be made easy and enjoyable!

The goal of Two Rivers Emporium fly fishing school is to simplify catching a fish with a fly. The art of fly fishing is often shrouded in mysterious terminology and academic parlance, which can intimidate many individuals who would like to participate in this great sport. In contrast, our experienced staff will simplify the basic tenets of fly casting and fly fishing so students will immediately be able to enjoy this activity on Wyoming;s wonderful waterways. The principal instructor for the schools is Mike Kaul, a Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Casting Instructor.

Fly Fishing Guru – Overall Rating: 5/5 Stars

"I have participated in Mike's "Ladies Only" fly fishing clinics for several years. Mike shares practical strategy in casting, fly selection and knot tying. The information and application these clinics provide is priceless. I highly recommend his float trips, classes or clinics to all whether a novice or expert fly fisher."

Beginners will be taught basic casting skills, tackle set-up and basic knots. The students will also receive an introduction on how to spot fish and what artificial flies to use in this area. Experienced fly fishers will receive a refresher on fundamentals and assistance in refining casting and fishing skills.

Eighty percent of the instruction is "hands on" and designed to allow the students to immediately apply their skills to a fly fishing situation.

Fly fishing school programs include guided instructional trips to private lease streams and ponds. There is no better way to learn this great sport than to spend quality time with an expert instructor on the water.
Half Day School
Offered June - September with advanced reservations

Designed for individuals who are visiting the area and want to quickly learn the basics of fly-fishing and immediately apply these skills on lakes and streams in the area. This school is also useful for the accomplished fly fisher who needs a tune-up on casting techniques and wants to learn about fishing tactics in the local area before hitting the waterways. Beginning students are taught basic fly casting techniques, local fishing tactics, necessary knots and local fly selection.

The instructor reviews these subjects with the accomplished fly fisher and helps increase proficiency in any desired area.

COST: (See Pricing) Includes three hours of instruction (tax, flies, license are extra).

One Day School
Offered June - September with advanced reservations

The content and design of this program mirrors the half-day school. But the subject matter is covered in more detail and more time is devoted to hands-on practical exercises. Personal attention is guaranteed since the program is designed of two individuals with one instructor.

This low student to instructor ratio allows us to work with two fishers of different skill levels and provide them both with the tools they need to enjoy a fly fishing trip in our area.

COST: (See Pricing) Includes two nights lodging (double occupancy); lunch, instruction, and a guided practical exercise on a private lease pond (tax flies, license are extra).

Three Day School
Offered mid-July to mid-September with advanced reservations

The first day is the same as the one-day school. The students then participate in two days of guided fishing on some of Wyoming's finest trout streams. A competent instructor is at their side. This program is sure to please both the beginner and accomplished fly fisher.

COST: (See Pricing) Includes four nights deluxe lodging, three lunches, one day of basic instruction, two days of guided wade fishing on private leases or float fishing. (tax, flies, license are extra)
