You can never be overdressed or overeducated.
One thing I really appreciate is my close affiliation with Little River Outfitters in Townsend, TN. While I do not work directly for the shop, I am fortunate to teach, along side Walter Babb, all of their beginner fly fishing schools. It’s a great way to get into the sport and we teach approximately two a month from March through October. I also teach a few specialty classes, such as Nymphing Tactics, that are offered periodically throughout the year.
These classes all need to be reserved through the shop rather than me. For a complete schedule and to sign up, click on the Schools link.
