Wulff School of Fly Fishing is one of the oldest Fly Fishing Schools in this country, the school has taught hundreds of students from novices to pros how to improve their technique and understanding of fly fishing. Whether you’re just starting or are looking to take your casting to the next level, the Wulff School of Fly Fishing is a great investment in your future enjoyment of the sport.
The school is located in the Catskills, the birthplace of dry-fly fishing in America, on its best known river, the Beaverkill. Its 100 acres in the upper Beaverkill Valley is a beautiful setting of forest, meadow, and ponds. The building was especially designed to meet teaching requirements. An adjoining private stretch of the Beaverkill is used to teach wading, streamcraft, and obstacle casting.
Students with extra time may enjoy fishing the Delaware’s main stem, plus the East and West branches, as well as the trout-rich no-kill stretches of the Beaverkill and Willowemoc.
Wulff School of Fly Fishing Classes:
This is an all-encompassing trout course, good for beginners and experienced trout fishermen alike. In addition to the theory and practice of casting* on ponds and in the river, you’ll learn about stream entomology, fishing knots, reading water, tackle know-how, fly selection, approach and presentation, wading, playing, landing and releasing fish. Joan’s Fly Casting Techniques is provided as a textbook,* including use of videotape on one of the six sessions.
This course is the ideal follow-up to the Trout Course. The course is designed to improve any angler’s casting skill in fresh or salt water because we can instruct individually and move at each student’s pace. The course includes tackle know-how, casting patterns for stream coverage, accuracy, shooting line, and – depending on student’s interest and ability – handling heavy flies, double haul casting, oval cast, curves and mends, spey and quick casts, kayak or canoe casting and other advanced techniques.
