Spokane Fly Fishers School
The Spokane Fly Fishers school is a great opportunity to learn a lifetime skill and help you along your journey of enjoying great outdoor experiences.
The eight-week school typically starts the third week of February and ends near the end of March/first weekend in April. Classes are offered to approximately forty students with registration beginning in December. Seven indoor classes are held at the Inland Northwest Wildlife Center, 6116 N. Market St. from 6:00 pm to approx. 7:30 pm. Class topics include Equipment, Knot Tying, Entomology, Fishing Moving Water, Fishing Still Water, Water Safety, and Fishing Identification and Conservation. In addition, three outdoor Fly Casting Classes are held on three Saturdays in March (9:00 am – 11:00 am) at Franklin Park in North Spokane.
The final class is held on the last Saturday in March or the first Saturday in April at Waterfront Park in Medical Lake, WA. The class features basics such as rigging fly rods, tying on dry and dropper flies, nymphs, tying leaders and tippets, hook removal, and casting on the water. If enough interest, Pontoon Boat instruction (in your personal craft only) prior to the start of the class day. The day closes around 11:30 am with pizza and soft drinks.
