I’ve been fly fishing for one season, thought I knew the basics. Boy was I wrong. In a two hour session Ray helped me understand the fundamental mechanics of casting and how to adapt to different situations. I left confident in my abilities and even caught a few fish later that day. Ray is a great instructor with a passion for helping others. I highly encourage anyone looking to learn about fly fishing to take a course with him. You won’t be disappointed.
"Thanks to your easygoing attitude and knowledge of all things fly fishing, the entire “lesson” didn’t feel like a lesson, but more like a friend just giving some tips on how to be a better fisher, with an overall relaxing feel to the whole day. I really look forward to getting out again and learning more."
“I just wanted to let you know how great of a time I had. Not having much fishing experience in any area, I was hesitant to take your course. I have to say that you were/are a great instructor. I felt like we had known you for years which made the lesson that much easier to focus on.”
"Ray is an unbelievable teacher. I have never fly-fished & felt a tad intimidated by the thought of taking this on. I need not have worried! Ray adopts an informative but easygoing approach, is positive and energetic and really imparts his obvious enthusiasm to his pupils. I Kraft our 3-hour session full of confidence and raring to go! Cant recommend Ray strongly enough, he's the real deal. I'm extremely pleased & grateful! Well done Ray Ramos.........top man!"
"My private half-day session was thoughtful fun super informative hands-on and gave me time to put his words and my exact needs and desires into action. I walked away informed excited and confident with what Ray was able to thoughtfully teach me. I was worried I would be intimidated or feel overwhelmed but instead, it was just the opposite!! if I could I would take a lesson with him every week!"
"My friend and I recently took two introductory lessons with Ray. Neither one of us had done any fly fishing before. Ray is the consummate outdoor teaching professional. He is an excellent teacher. His incredible passion for fly fishing is contagious. After two lessons I feel confident that I can start fishing on my own. I enthusiastically recommend anyone who wants to start fly fishing or needs a refresher to contact Ray. I plan on taking more lessons with him in the future."
"What an amazing time my husband and our kids had learning from Mr. Ramos. Besides beyond skilled, he is simply the nicest soul to chat with. We have made memories with him and his company, and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you Ray for being patient, thoughtful and I'm grateful with our family."
