Fly Fishing School
This is a three-day school that is paced to your ability. We will cover all of the basics - equipment, casting, knots, flies, hatches, reading water, hooking, landing and releasing fish and wading and traveling safely - but we will give you more time on the water under the watchful eye of your instructor to help you understand the nuances of the craft that will make you a better fly angler.
Mac Huff was blessed with an introduction to fly fishing by his father decades before "A River Runs Through It" brought fly fishing to the forefront of trendy outdoor recreation. He will share with you his decades of experience and the fine details of fly fishing that will give you an edge against wary fish of many species.
Mac is an Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Guide and has fished the waters that he now guides on for the past 30 years and owned and operated a fly shop and sporting goods store in Enterprise for 13 years. He is a wildlife biologist and a Federation of Fly Fishers certified fly casting instructor and recently was lead instructor for two years for Oregon's Department of Fish and Wildlife Becoming an Outdoors Woman (BOW) steelhead fly fishing seminar on the Grande Ronde River.
