LEARNING TO FLY FISH

THE PERFECT WAY TO ENJOY BC’S GREAT OUTDOORS

There are a ton of great places to go fly fishing close to Vancouver, but knowing when and where and how can be a bit daunting. We found over the years we had so many people fish with us who were just excited to learn. Please really just wanted to get a feel for fly fishing and learn some of the basic, but weren’t interested in the cost or time of a full day guided trip.
So, we came up with our Vancouver fly fishing courses. These condensed, on the water, courses will be the foundation to new adventures and an affordable way to try a new sport. Fly fishing on BC’s south coast can be enjoyed year round, it’s a great way to get outside, enjoy nature, spend time with your friends and family and in these crazy times it is the ultimate way to social distance!
Our team of instructors will make sure you get the most out of your day, learning lots in a safe and comfortable environment. There is nothing silly you can do or ask, just come and enjoy yourself and learn all about fly fishing in BC.

“We learnt more than we could have imagined, a great day with Yos and Tom, would highly recommend Chromer’s fly fishing school for any and all!”

COURSE FAQ’s

VANCOUVER FLY FISHING SCHOOL

Here’s some of our most frequently asked questions about our fly fishing courses in Squamish…
Do you need any experience to take this course?

Absolutely no experience necessary. You can come not knowing what end of the rod to hold and we’ll have you casting like an all-star by the end of the day. Our courses go over fly fishing gear, finding fish, casting instruction, on-the-water safety and much more. If you have some experience this is fly fishing course will hone your skills and make you a better fly angler.

What are your COVID-19 protocols?

Courses are instructed outside in an outdoor setting. Social distances are kept between members and all gear is sanitized before and after use. Safety first!

What do I need to bring and wear?

Bring some clothes as if you were going hiking. Some warmer socks are nice when you’re in the water casting and some lightweight pants are best underneath the waders we supply you. Layering is key to being comfortable on the water, so a fleece top with light wind/rain jacket is a good combo. You’re welcome to bring food and drinks (no alcohol). Sun screen and sunglasses are a must on nice days and a good hat will keep the sun and rain off your head.

How do I get a fishing license?

Getting a fishing licenses is really easy. It is all done online and when you book your spot in our fly fishing course we’ll send you a link and instructions to exactly what you need.

Do you have age or physical requirements?

Unfortunately we cannot accommodate young anglers under the age of 12 in our group classes, this is mainly for safety reasons. You will be required to do some walking (from your car to our class area) and some walking along rocks and sand.

“This was the best day for my son and I. We learnt so much from our day with Tom. The course was very well organized and lots of fun. My son fell in love with fly fishing and it is something we look forward to doing together for many years to come.”
