What you'll do

We will meet on the grass at Boulevard park, a popular local hangout along the shore of Bellingham Bay. We will learn the different components of a fly rod and how to set it up. Then, we will begin casting lessons. There will be no fly attached to the line to ensure that you don't accidentally hook yourself. After you feel comfortable with your casts, we will take a short walk over a boardwalk to Taylor Dock, where you can practice your casting into the ocean. There is a small local coffee shop along the way to the Dock and we can stop if you would like something to eat or drink. After we perfect your cast, we will go over essential knots for fly fishing and how to bring in a fish once you have hooked it.

I am the owner of Salmon River Sportfishing, a small business that guides small groups (1-5) of tourists on remote river fishing and river kayaking trips in Southeast Alaska during the summer months. I have been guiding fishing trips and teaching people how to fish for 7 years and I have been fishing on my own for 17 years. I am passionate about teaching visitors to Bellingham, WA how to fly fish because for me, there is no better way to relax and enjoy the outdoors.
