Designed for beginners, the two-hour casting clinic covers basic casting, while the two-hour fly-fishing clinic covers strategy and identifying bugs that make effective flies. The four-hour classes wade into even deeper strategies, boosting anglers’ skills with the best methods for finding lake trout. Each course fee includes rental rods and equipment, but students will also need a freshwater-fishing license and may require rubber boots and waders, which they can rent from Dickson Flyfishing for an additional $5. Classes are held on one of several lakes in the area, including Lake Tyee, Lake Riley, and Twin Ponds.
A father-son team, Dickson Flyfishing guides and teaches fly-fishing to all levels of anglers on Olympic Peninsula waters, Puget Sound rivers, and many eastern Washington rivers. Conscious of their environmental impact, they lead eco-rafting trips throughout the year on the Skagit, Sauk, and Queets Rivers, as well as fishing trips for steelhead, cutthroat trout, and salmon with scales made of gold. More adventurous clients can embark on winter fly-fishing trips for tarpon on the flats of the Caribbean or three-day campouts on the Grande Ronde River. Additionally, scenic rafting tours bring visitors up close to wildlife such as eagles. Dickson Flyfishing also runs a virtual fly shop, where they sell their own line of equipment.
