Hi!

I just joined the forum and just bought my first fly rod the other week. I’ve taken one individual class but would like to do an intensive fly fishing school. Has anyone attended a women’s fly fishing school, or one of the Orvis schools? Any recommendations?

I have not. But as a beginner myself I would be interested. I have found several very good videos just on You Tube which do a very good job at teaching...but its not the same as hands on for sure.

I noticed that Tarrant County College has a class, an actual college credit, but it is fly fishing and it meets in the evening. I cannot remember what days but I think the spring semester starts in January. It probably would be so fun, I wish the time worked for me. Keira Quam with the Texas Parks and Wildlife would be a good resource, she does a lot of fly fishing. You might want to friend her on Facebook, she is fantastic.

A good group to work with are the Dallas Fly Fishers. They can direct you to folks or places for lessons and they even offer fly tying classes if that is of interest to you. I think there is also a group in Fort Worth.
