Fly Fishing and Casting School




A world class fishing experience awaits you in the rivers, streams and ponds of New Hampshire and Maine.  However, many of these trophy waters are reserved for fly fishing only.  This restriction significantly reduces fishing pressure and can provide you with an unparalleled opportunity to catch a variety of magnificent trout and salmon.

The New Hampshire Outdoor Learning Center is proud to offer one of the most advanced fly fishing and casting classes available in the state.  We offer a jam packed 1 1/2 day Fly Fishing School that will introduce you to this amazing sport and help you polish your skills. No experience is necessary….even if you have been fly fishing for years, our Licensed NH Guide and FFF certified instructor, John McKernan can help you take your ability to the next level. John brings 35+ years of fly fishing and teaching experience to this class.
