General fly fishing class information

Why is a private fly fishing class most effective?

The  s a v v y  dealing with the fly rod, coupled with sound background knowledge are the prerequisites of successful fly fishing.
As with any sport, the key to success lies in a professional instruction.
From next season on, we therefore exclusively offer you private lessons in fly fishing only as well as pure casting lessons at desired dates. The date as well as the lesson duration is determined by you, just limited to availability and seasonal restrictions. Only in this way can a course be optimally tailored to your abilities and designed individually according to your interests, taking into account your leisure time management. This does not mean that you can only attend a class by yourself, take your partner or fishing buddy(s) with you!
Another great advantage - your booked course appointment can be postponed free of charge in case of bad weather or merky water upon request at short notice. So good conditions are always guaranteed on your class day or days, a huge plus over group courses with a fixed date, that will take place in ugly weather or flood no matter what.
Although a private class for 1 to 3 people costs significantly more than a group event with 6 or more participants, you will benefit more from the high individuality, intensive training and guaranteed suiting conditions for fly fishing during your course.
For you this means the  h i g h e s t  p o s s i b l e  quality and effectiveness which makes for a great course experience!

Maximum learning success on every level!

As just explained, an individual fly fishing lesson for 1 to 3 participants enables optimized training and further education. Of course equally important is a  c o m p e t e n t  instructor who understandably mediates you the know-how.

So whether you want to start fly fishing, have gained some experience or are swinging the fly rod for a long time already, the content of the class - means what you want to learn or improve - can be matched perfectly to your abilities and personal preferences.
There are hardly any limits to your interests: From achieving a profound fundament, an adjustment of the basic casting technique to special presentation casts or the learning of the double-haul there is a broad spectrum of casting and presentation techniques. But just as well you could also learn how tie a special knot or ask questions about fly patterns or equipment and their use and about so much more around the topic. We'll tell you and we'll show you!
