Public Floating Fly Fishing School

No Regrets! Just Do It! ★★★★★

I surprised my husband and my 10-year-old son with a Public Floating Fly Fishing School this summer. The boys came back exhausted but so excited! Neither one had ever fly fished but they caught 6 fish! You must realize, for a couple of city kids, that is a BIG deal. No regrets! Just do it!

Private Floating Fly Fishing School

A memorable day on the river with an expert guide! ★★★★★

Thank you Jackson Hole Fly Fishing School for what ended up being a highlight of our vacation out in Jackson Hole! We booked the floating school which not only introduced us to the sport of fly fishing in an accessible and fun way but also gave us the opportunity to float down the famous Snake River and take in the majestic scenery of the surrounding Tetons. Caleb, our guide, was a top-notch - personable, good sense of humor, knowledgeable and extremely patient! We'll be back this summer!
