The Gift of Education

Brandon Rodriguez / Dec 15, 2021

Educational opportunities may be the most overlooked and underrated gifts every holiday season. Here at Trouts Fly Fishing, we are pleased to offer a wide variety of learning opportunities, no matter where you are on your journey in the sport. Our educational opportunities are always in season, always topical, and will have you leaving a more competent angler.

The best part? A large majority of our beginner angler classes start at only $50. These class opportunities are a perfect gift item for someone in your life (or maybe yourself!) who is just beginning their journey into the world of fly fishing. If you or someone you know is a more experienced angler, we also offer dedicated learning opportunities for specific species and fly fishing techniques.

If you happen to be wanting a more one-on-one experience with the knowledgeable Trouts staff, consider opting for a full or half-day guided trip! Just like our educational opportunities, our guided trip options never go out of stock and are perfect for any angler at any skill level. With locations in Denver, CO, and Frisco, CO, we have been proudly serving the Colorado angling community since 1995. From tailwaters to stillwaters to freestone rivers, we specialize in curating one-of-a-kind fly fishing experiences on some of Colorado's most iconic trout streams. By offering both wade fishing and float fishing trips led by some of the most experienced guides in the industry, we help ensure your time on the water is not only enjoyable but memorable.

No matter where you are in your angling journey, here at Trouts Fly Fishing, we are pleased to offer multiple ways to grow your knowledge of the sport. From dedicated one-on-one instruction to classroom-style instruction, we genuinely have an opportunity for everyone.

Our popular entry level classes!


At one point or another, we have been on the water and watched fish seemingly jumping all around us, gorging themselves on the thousands of bugs. As fly anglers, we’ve heard the expression 'Match the Hatch', yet we continue scratching our heads while casting to fish uninterested in our flies. Without question, a better understanding of a trout’s diet will help improve your success with fly fishing.
Our Trouts Bugs for Beginners class will help demystify the major food sources trout key in on throughout the year. We will focus in on Midges, Mayflies, Caddis, Stoneflies, Terrestrials, and general attractors. Our class is designed and purposed to help you better understand the major insect groups Including how to effectively identify and fish them. You will leave our class with the capabilities to successfully 'Match the Hatch'.

Trouts is excited to partner with Umpqua Feather Merchants for our introductory Fly Tying classes. These classes are for the budding fly tyer and a perfect opportunity to find out if fly tying is for you!
