$65 for a Three-Hour Fly-Fishing Lesson ($140 Value)

During each three-hour lesson, up to six aspiring fly-casters—each equipped with provided equipment—work to develop proper casting reflexes, hook-setting techniques, and basic trout conversational skills. Students must call ahead to reserve a place in class, as well as place a note on their doors signifying that they’ve gone fishing.

Stillwater Guide Service

Fishing guru Chris Wharton has fly-fished on America's glassy lakes for more than 35 years, part of which he has spent passing on his extensive knowledge of the sport as the guide and instructor at Stillwater Guide Service. He regularly takes groups out to fly-fish on the calm, trout-filled waters of nearby Lake Davis and Frenchman Lake, among others.

Chris knows that fly-fishing is infinitely more rewarding once one has attained the proper skill set. That's why his lessons focus on precision casting and hook-setting techniques that help students reliably net trout of up to 7 pounds. He also teaches groups how to read the waters for clues that help determine where trout are most likely to hunt for food, shelter, and the sharks that ate their wives. When he isn't leading three-hour lessons, Chris organizes full-day trips and overnight adventures to numerous aquatic destinations.
