Beginner Instruction

FFF-certified casting Instructor Wayne Stinnette will be teaching this class for absolute beginners.  This class will introduce beginners to the sport of Fly Fishing. It includes but is not limited to the following:

  • equipment set-up

  • basic knots
    different types of flies and their uses

  • fly casting basics for superior line control

Equipment provided for beginner class only.

Location: Meet at shop. Location in or near Lynchburg 15 minutes from the shop. Plan your own transportation from shop to the casting location.

Sign up here or at Angler's Lane.

Follow-up recommend: Intermediate class same day as beginner class.  After break for lunch we proceed to Intermediate class which is on-water instruction (see below).


Intermediate Instruction

IFFF-certified Instructor Stinnette will continue to build on the morning lessons. You will be exposed to more details of fly fishing in a real moving water setting (either a location in or near Lynchburg on the James River or Staunton River, or at our Rivenridge at Piney Forks, our private trout lodge in the George Washington National Forest), depending on which location has better water levels.  You can expect to learn how to roll cast, pile cast, reach cast, plus how to avoid tailing loops, and will receive an introduction to the double haul used often in saltwater or distance situations. 

Plan to handle your transportation to the class.  This class will be held at same location as morning Beginner class (required unless you have considerable prior experience).

$135 per person (includes Beginner class, Intermediate Class & gear rental).  BYOLunch.

Book now

Location: Saturday September 15, 2018 - TBD - start at Anglers Lane.  Class most likely to occur at our Rivenridge at Piney Forks lodge.  There is a chance we would have class at Percival's Island Park on James R.

Classes vs Guided trips - Our classes focus on techniques of instruction vs catching fish.  If you seek both in one outing, then you want to book a guided trip with us.  We can customize guided trips according to your own dates (pending shop availability).  You do not need to have experienced our Beginner or Intermediate class in order to schedule a guided trip with us. 

Customized Class dates
- If you have a group of  2 or more, you can reserve Rivenridge at Piney Forks or Stonesthrow on Jackson exclusively for your group with sufficient advanced notice.  Lodging rates are shown on each page.  Taking a trip out west with friends who are beginners (and you want to fish rather than teach)?  No problem,  we will teach your friends or family how to fish in our beautiful setting.  We recommend 2 overnights for this trip at our Rivenridge at Piney Forks lodge.


Our goal is to break down
the process into simple steps;
