If you have been thinking about giving fly fishing a try, check out the Miramichi Fly Fishing School.
The Miramichi Fly Fishing School is only a stone's throw away from the Bartholomew and Miramichi rivers in New Brunswick, Canada. New Brunswick is home to some of the best Atlantic salmon fly fishing, which makes it a perfect place to offer fly fishing courses. These courses will definitely give you a jump start on a great sport.
The courses are designed to help and improve both beginners and experienced fly fishers, with an emphasis on Atlantic salmon fishing. They provide you with all the equipment needed for the course, but suggest that you prepare yourself for various weather conditions.
There are Federation of Fly Fishers (FFF) certified instructors on hand for these courses. At Miramichi Fly Fishing School, they prefer smaller classes – a 4-to-1 student instructor ratio. This ratio ensures you will be getting the best experience in fly fishing they can offer you. They typically begin with ground school training, and then move to the river for the rest of the day training. Soon you’ll be the one telling a story about “the one that got away!”
