Fly casting lessons in Connecticut (CT) or Rhode Island (RI): Individual or a group up to 4 are designed to accommodate novice to advanced anglers. Fly casting lessons range from a 1-hour intro to a full day of instruction. Lessons are offered outside on the lawn or on the water with a chance to catch a fish!

Topics of discussion vary and can include:
