This isn’t your typical classroom.

For many of us fly fishing is a lifelong journey. There’s always more to techniques to learn, flies to try more water to explore. Whether you’ve never picked up a fly rod, or you are a longtime veteran of the sport, we have classes to help you improve as an angler.

Our classes range widely, from our Fly Fishing 101 class, offering an in depth introduction into the sport all the way to our advanced fly tying class, Fly Tying 201. With other courses including bug life identification in our Entomology Class, frequent casting classes covering everything from distance and accuracy to two handed spey and double haul techniques, we are here and very excited to pass on our knowledge to you and opportunity to connect you with industry professionals and instructors.

No matter where you are in your fly fishing journey, we want to help you improve, catch more fish and have more fun on the water. For details on upcoming classes, please see the links below. You can also swing by the shop or call us at 303-794-1104 to get signed up.

  1. Distance & Double Haul Casting Class

    Distance & Double Haul Casting Class

    $50.00
    Date: Saturday, June 10th
    Time: 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
    Instructor: Jonathan Walter
    Location: Anglers All Store

    Learning to cast farther is fun, it reaches more fish, but it also improves your shorter casts, accuracy, and dealing with wind! Participants will discover three key elements of distance and understand their importance: loop control, line speed, and line carry. You will learn and perform practice drills for each element that will help all of your casting. Approximately half of the time will be spent learning double haul which will include more practice drills you can take away from the clinic. Participants should bring an 8-9 ft., 5 wt. or greater fly rod with floating fly line (preferably bright colored) and a 7.5 ft. 0X-2X leader.


    The instructor, Jonathan Walter, is an International Federation of Fly Fishers Master Certified Casting Instructor and has over 20 years of teaching and fishing experience.
