Super Experience,
June 6, 2014

"Anyone thinking about learning fly fishing should take this class. It is first rate. Pat is an excellent instructor and conveys the information so that everyone can understand. Pat and Brian had everyone in the class casting by the end of the first day. Videotaping was really helpful. And, the school being held in one of the prettiest places in the west doesn't hurt either. On the 2nd day we fished the awesome Coeur d'Alene river, where the scenery is drop dead gorgeous. Everyone received personal on-river attention. And, everyone caught fish. If you are thinking about the sport and thinking about teaching yourself, don't. Get a super high quality, professional introduction from the Orvis schools and the Northwest Outfitters."

"My son and I had a marvelous experience at the beautiful Coeur d' Alene fly fishing school. My son had never held a fly rod and I was self taught. The school gave both of us the skills and knowledge to feel comfortable fly fishing with people of any skill level. Pat Way was a great instructor."

"I'm not sure why this is showing up as a new school, but I went to the school taught by Northwest Outfitters in Coeur d'Alene three years ago and absolutely loved it. It is taught by guys who love to fish, and love to teach people how to fish. Since then, I've gone back to Idaho several times to use them as guides, and they never disappoint. I've always known that they're extremely knowledgeable, but after using other guiding services in other parts of the country (and the world), I've realized just how good these guys really are. This is a "can't miss" program."
