Fly Fishing Education for All

About Fly Fish Instruct 

We are excited to launch this unique opportunity designed for those new to fly fishing and those who wish to become better anglers.

Fly Fish Instruct is a community-driven organization with a mission of offering accessible and affordable fly-fishing education to ALL.    Our goal is to empower and inspire anglers with the representation of all species, all fly-fishing techniques, and all people. We believe that everyone should be given an opportunity to learn to fly fish.


Learners and Leaders Today


What Makes Us Unique?

Diversifying our sport is accomplished through being deliberate, supporting one another, mentoring, community outreach, generosity, and relationship building.  First and foremost, this effort is rooted in the early and ongoing work, philosophy, and passion of fly-fishing instructor, guide, and founder of United Women on the Fly, Heather Hodson.  Heather’s intentional efforts to change the gender and complexion of our sport are at the heart of what we do and offer.  

Secondly, our instructors/mentors are diverse by design.  We are an experienced family of fly anglers dedicated to a life of learning how to be better instructors, mentors, fly-fishers, and caretakers of our plant.  

Thirdly, we are not just about teaching the “how to” of casting and fishing. We are not just instructors but equal partners, mentors, and relationship builders. We are dedicated to sharing a way of thinking, interacting with one another, and protecting our natural world and the many water species we seek.  

Confident and Competent on the Water

Scholarships – 

We acknowledge the many barriers to fly fishing and don’t want anyone to be turned away from education.  Scholarships are available for our online courses.  Please send an email to us at

Donations –

Give the gift of knowledge.  All donations will go to the Celine Bayla Education Scholarship Fund.  Celine was an incredible woman who left this world much too early.  Celine worked with United Women on the Fly to make education more accessible and fly fishing more inclusive. These funds will help anyone start their fly fishing education journey.  Donate HERE.

A sincere welcome from all of us here at Fly Fish Instruct.  We are confident that you will have a positive and life-changing learning experience.  We are also flexible enough to customize a learning experience to meet your angling needs specifically.    For us, it’s not about just catching fish! We are All things Fly-Fishing. 

Thank you for your support!
