FlyMasters Fly Fishing School

Current stock:
We have folks come into the shop all the time asking where do you fly fish in Indiana? Believe it or not you can catch many different species of fish within 1 to 3 hours of Indianapolis. Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, White Bass, Hybrid Bass, Striped Bass, Steelhead, Salmon, Trout (Browns and Rainbows), Muskie, Northern Pike, Carp, and sunfish can all be caught on a fly rod! With just a little instruction you can begin to enjoy fly fishing for any of these species in no time at all.  Our fly fishing school is a cut above the rest because we work around your busy schedule and make it convenient for you to learn.  
The goal of Phase 1 is to educate you about what equipment would be appropriate as you begin fly fishing.
Please let us help you with that purchase!
Our school offers an introduction to fly fishing, basic equipment, casting techniques, playing and landing fish.   The school is divided into three convenient phases to allow you to gain the most out of each session.
Phase One:
Introduction to Equipment and Knots (in store phase we schedule after store hours). This is one session.
During 2023-24 we will be offering Phase 1 in group or individual appts. We will be posting dates for group Phase 1's in December. Individual appointments for Phase 1 may continue to be made throughout 2023-24 by calling FlyMasters at 317-570-9811.
All Phase 1 classes are done by appt. You call Jon Widboom, instructor, and arrange a time to meet at FlyMasters. There may be other people in the Phase one session since it does not require one on one instruction. You only attend one Phase 1 class. 
Phase Two: 
Basic fly casting and still water fly fishing (by appointment Monday through Saturday Morning). This phase may be 1 or 2 classes depending on how quickly someone picks up the sport. Generally, the length of class is 45-75 minutes. These classes are usually done one on one, but can be done with another person (son, daughter, wife, husband, etc.) We use a public pond up in Carmel, Indiana. For those living South of Indianapolis, Phase 2 can be arranged in Brown County.
Phase Three:
Moving water and stream techniques (by appointment Monday through Saturday Morning) Arrange the time just like Phase Two.
We start Phase One our in the winter months. Phase one of our school is in the shop so we can start people on their way to learning how to fly fish. Phases two and three are usually on an individual basis, arranged around your schedule. Sessions will vary in length.  
The cost for the entire school is $100.00 per person paid when you start Phase One.
