Fly fishing in Texas? You’re darn right! Here at Tailwaters, we are crazy about fly fishing – let us introduce you to your next passion with one of our Fly Fishing 101 group classes. We will cover the fundamentals of casting, demonstrate how to play, fight, and land a fish, walk through basic gear-assembly techniques, and demonstrate how to tie a few knots – all in only two hours!

No gear? No worries! As part of the cost of the class, Fly Fishing 101 students receive a Redington Field Kit (rod, reel, line, and travel case) of their choice. The field kit is ready to fish, just add a fly! Check out our course schedule and reach out to register! You’ll leave with the skills and knowledge to build a solid, starting foundation for your fly angling journey, and meet new friends with similar interests. Here’s what you can expect:

Schedule: Check out our class schedule and find a date that works for you. Our classes run on Saturdays from 8AM-10AM at the shop, with a maximum of twelve (12) students per class. Give us a call to secure your spot.

Arrival: We recommend arriving at the shop a few minutes before your scheduled class. We aim to start promptly at 8AM to maximize our education and instruction time.

Class: We divide our class into two sections: (1) in-shop education, and (2) outdoor casting. We start with the basics! Your instructor will walk you through your Redington Field Kit, show you how the equipment pieces together, explain the mechanics, review flys and knots, and discuss hooking, fighting, landing, and releasing fish. Then it’s time to cast! We all felt awkward holding a fly rod for the first time – but every cast or drill gets you more comfortable. We will show you how to hold the rod, how the rod and line work together, and casting techniques to set you up for fishing on your own.

Wrap-Up: The journey doesn’t end there. Stick around for a few minutes and we can walk you through the shop. Got a bass pond nearby or have a destination trip in the future? Your instructor can recommend products to set you up for success. And to properly welcome you to the Tailwaters family, each student receives a special gift at the conclusion of their class.

We love sharing our passion and can’t wait to walk alongside you on your fly fishing journey. From education, to equipment, to exploration, we offer a 360 degree program to service anglers of all ages and levels. Let’s go!
