3 Day Trout School

Outstanding fly fishing guides and teachers in Jackson WY ★★★★★

I just left Jackson WY after a grand 3-day fishing adventure with a life long friend who has dreamed of fly fishing all his life. So I took him to Jackson for an introductory 3-day fishing adventure to kick start his education - he's now HOOKED. Spence and his crew did a phenomenal job of easing my friend into fly fishing, teaching him how to wade and fish, float and fish, cast, mend, roll cast, as well as introduce him to the basics of fly entomology. Can't say enough nice things about the team and their amazing 'lab'.
