Learn to fly fish!!


By Jan Peterson

Jans Men’s and Women’s Fly-Fishing Schools

The best way to learn the sport-art-science of fly fishing is to enroll in one of  Jans’ fly-
fishing schools. Under the watchful eyes of our experienced and caring instructors, you’ll
learn how to cast with proficiency and how to use the equipment properly and understand
its function.

Separate men’s and women’s sessions each start with an evening of fly casting lessons and
equipment familiarization. The following morning commences a full day of on-stream
instruction in fish habitat, entomology, knot tying, fishing techniques, fly selection and
presentation, and catching and releasing fish.

The cost per person is $225 per two-day session and includes equipment, transportation to
and from the river, and a hearty lunch with beverages. (Tax, fishing license and gratuity
are not included.)

Ladies clinics are offered twice in July: Session I is the evening of July 7th
followed by all-day on the river on July 8th, and Session II is the evening of July
21st and all day July 22.

A men’s clinic is scheduled for the evening of July 14th followed by all day on the
river on July l5th.

You many also choose to have your own private five-hour fly fishing lesson which
includes all of the above at a time of your own choosing. The cost is $300 for one
person plus $75 for each additional person. Reservations are required.

You can also join us for free fly casting lessons every Monday evening at 5:00pm. Meet
at the Gazebo at the Deer Valley ponds in lower Deer Valley and an expert instructor will
teach you how to cast. Let us know if you will be attending; a limited supply of rods is
available for use.

Call us at 649-4949 or come by the store seven days a week to make your summer sizzle
with fly-fishing fun!
