Festival Classes

 

The Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival is proud to partner with Tailwaters Fly Fishing Company and others to provide specialty classes to festival goers this year. Instructors have been handpicked to provide the best instruction possible, and to provide the student the best atmosphere for learning.  All outside casting classes will be held regardless of the weather, so dress accordingly. No refunds or exchanges will be provided.

Beginner Fly Casting Classes with Wanda Taylor (Limit 8). This co-ed class is for beginners with little to no experience fly fishing. Wanda Taylor, the country’s first female Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Master Casting Instructor and a Temple Fork Outfitters advisor, is known as much for her warm and comfortable disposition as she is for her outstanding casting ability. Students will learn all the basic mechanics of fly casting. The lecture portion of the class is done in a group; each student will receive individualized instruction. Students should bring their own rods; rods can be provided with advance notice if needed. The class will meet just outside of the admissions/ticket counter.  All classes will be held outside. Check availability by clicking here.

Advanced Casting Classes with Ed Jaworowski (Limit 10). Those who have been fly casting for years but long to take their skills to the next level should check out this class.
