During River Through Atlanta's beginner fly-fishing course, Orvis-certified guides lead pupils through techniques and equipment setup to have them casting like pros in three engaging hours. With all equipment provided, students learn the roll cast, vertical cast, and 3/4 cast, as well as aquatic ecology and how to select flies. Unlike Robin Williams's acting career, lessons don't utilize hooks, but yarn flies ensure the authenticity of the demonstrations.

River Through Atlanta

A Roswell native, River Through Atlanta owner Chris Scalley grew up on the Chattahoochee River, which he proudly still calls home. It's not unusual for Chris to spend 200 days or more on the Hooch, as he and his affiliate guides constantly lead fly fishing instruction, boat trips, and wading trips on the river. Because of his lifetime of experience, Chris has accumulated a unique knowledge of the local ecology, behavior of the trout, and how frequently they vote on American Idol. Though he has fished at destination rivers all over the world, Chris still feels that the Hooch holds its own with regard to angling and aesthetics. To preserve these aesthetics, Chris led efforts to protect the Chattahoochee and its sport fishery, earning him recognition in 2007 as a Hero of Conservation in Field & Stream.
