The Sundowner

This is the perfect choice for people wanting the “complete experience” in an educational setting.

The Sundowner includes two different PowerPoint style classes, casting lessons and fishing!

*Limited availability, advance reservations are highly recommended.

Introduction to Gear: Learn the ins-and-outs of rods, reels, fly lines, leaders, tippet and more. This class is also a great stepping stone to help figure out what to buy, and more importantly what NOT to buy if you’re a beginner angler.

Bugs for Beginners: Matching the hatch is what it’s all about! From stoneflies to midges, learning the bugs and their lifecycles can be just as important as the fishing itself. Choosing the right fly can be intimidating and nerve racking…not anymore!

Casting: Get started with the basics of the Pick Up and Lay Down cast, False Casting, shooting line and playing & landing fish with one of our top instructors.

Fishing: Put your new skills to the test while getting guided on our private, stocked ponds!

Class times: 7am-Noon or 3-8 pm. (Spring/Fall times may vary)

As a rookie fly fisher, I wasn't sure what class to take. Lu recommended the Cast N' Catch and it was the perfect fit! My instructor was patient, energetic and made the class so much fun. I can't wait to come back!

Trip Advisor Reviews

My son in law and I took Matt's beginners Cast N' Catch class and really had a great time with him and his associate Finn. Both were very helpful, great tips and information and very patient. I highly recommend his class and hopefully get to spend some more time with him and Finn the next time we are in Truckee!

Barry C.

My family and I loved our experience fly fishing. Two of us were beginners, and the instructors took the time to patiently teach and guide us. They made it so easy to gear up and provided a quick lesson on the basics. We caught some beautiful trout and the instructors took awesome pictures. I would highly recommend this activity for a friends or family trip!

Sammie S.

The whole experience was terrific. Many rainbows were caught and even a few “hogs”. Mike was a great help with casting & his handling of the fish was excellent! The resort ponds gave us a really fun morning. Would do it again in a minute!!

Harris P.

Wonderful experience fishing with Michael. He helped me perfect my fly casting. I caught four trout and my husband caught 15 in 1.5 hours. I highly recommend this to any would be fisher(wo)man!

Lindsay S.

Casting Class with Sam was perfect! He’s a great teacher; perfect for my total beginner friends and a great coach for me (a relative beginner.)
He presents information in clear, understandable parts; taking each student through each step. As a result, my two novice friends, who had never before held a rod, were executing satisfying distance casts at the end of our lesson. Sam’s friendly, warm coaching was terrific! If you have never held a rod, or if you want to polish your skills, you will love this class.
