“In the classroom portion of the Independent Angler workshop, I learned about flies, their life cycles, seining, and how to tie knots.  Then we went outside and learned how to cast and how to properly release fish.  I was excited to wiggle into my waders for the first time for a private water lesson with the amazing Heather Hodson, founder of Fly Fish Instruct.  I will never forget this amazing experience!”

“I love the fact that Heather continually showed her support to come and ask questions at any time! Having her and the others, they are on the river really was a game changer. Having her right beside me on some of the biggest catches, it was invaluable.”
