Lesson was excellent. Chris was extremely knowledgeable about FlyFishing and provided wonderful instruction to me and my 9 yr old son. Great experience. Will likely arrange for another lesson / guided trip in the future.

Call or email as soon as possible to book. Waders and boot rental was very reasonably priced. Make sure you have a fishing license. A one hour lesson is good for beginner or if you tire easily. I had a great time and I learned a lot! Chris, our guide, was very patient and made the whole experience a lot of fun.

What You'll Get

Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Spend a few hours frolicking through the fresh air of truth with today’s Groupon from Rod & Gun Guide Services. Choose between the following options:

  • For $35, you get a one-hour private fly-fishing lesson for up to two (up to a $140 value).
  • For $70, you get a two-hour private fly-fishing lesson for up to two (up to a $280 value).<p>

Rod & Gun Guide Services’ expert angler Chris Nischan draws on nearly 30 years of experience as a hunting and fishing mentor to teach pupils the art of fly fishing. Guided by Chris’s patient hand, students wade into the water (rental waders available for an extra $15 each) and learn to deftly cast flies so they land softly on the water. While most equipment is provided, Rod & Gun Guide Services recommends anglers pack a shade-making hat, a glare-blocking set of sunglasses, and a camera to document how cool they look in their hats and sunglasses.

About Rod & Gun Guide Services

Professional sportsman Chris Nischan chaperones the curious through the majesty of local nature as a wilderness, hunting, and fishing guide. A previous winner and many-time selected competitor of the Field & Stream Total Outdoorsman Challenge, he has mastered knowledge of diverse ecosystems from North Carolina to Belize. After earning a degree in wildlife management years ago, Chris moved on to a stint in the retail sporting goods industry before becoming a full-time guide and teacher. His guiding resumé now stretches 30-plus years and includes escorting big game hunters and Ernest Hemingway impersonators through the woodlands of Montana for 11 years. Upon touching wading boots down in Tennessee, he promptly decoded the way of the state's trophy bass, trout, and other warm- and cold-water species and now puts that knowledge to use for his clients. All these years as an outdoorsman have given Chris many soul-sustaining encounters with Mother Nature, including a life-changing encounter with Leisha, his wife of 14 years, whom he met on a guide outing.
