What people are saying about us


We've been outfitting and guiding people from all over the world since 1997. Here's what some of our fishing friends are saying about us:


"Hey Pat,
I want to thank you again for teaching me to flyfish. You knew I never fished before in my life and you took your time and did a great job. You said I would never look at a river the same from this point on & you were so right...!! I have fished around the world in the last 4 years and I think of my first lesson often. Thanks again, my friend, for enlightening me to the beauty of where fish live."

"I just returned from Coeur d'Alene. What a great experience! My instructor was great at finding ways to help each individual really get it! It was a fun and very informative time. I highly recommend the class for anyone wanting to get into fly fishing. What I have been trying to learn on my own really came together in class. It was money well spent."

"My wife and I signed up for the Fly Fishing School having no previous experience with fly fishing or fishing for trout. At the end of our second day of class I found myself reeling in a trout on a fly rod. The entire experience was GREAT! The instructor covered the "text book" type material as well as sharing his own personal experiences. When it came time to pick up a rod and start casting our instructor spent a great deal of time with each of us one on one. Northwest Outfitters, the host for our Fly Fishing School, did a wonderful job answering our questions outside of class, whether they were tackle-related or finding a spot to fish on our own. I wish we had taken this class years ago! If you are thinking about learning to fly fish then this is the place to go."
