I could not be more excited to announce I’ll be co-hosting a beginners trout school on the Missouri River in Montana later this spring! To top it off, the lead instructor will be THE Simon Gawesworth, a casting and educational legend in the fly fishing world.

Here’s a small excerpt from our friends at Fly Water Travel…

Whether you are a seasoned fly angler or new to the sport, this trip to Montana with Simon Gawesworth is sure to be an exciting and educational adventure. Simon will be traveling with the latest Sage fly rods and RIO fly lines perfectly matched for the Missouri River. Students will learn in the classroom on select mornings and evenings and spend the first day learning to cast with Simon and Matt. The second day of the course is designed to teach anglers how to fish with dry flies, nymphs and indicators, streamers and soft hackles, all while wade fishing on the Missouri River. The remaining two days concentrate on putting into practice the skills learned with two days of guided fishing with top Montana guides.

Far Bank Fly Fishing Schools are designed so that students leave the course with all the knowledge and skills needed for a lifetime of enjoyment in fly fishing. We do this by keeping the instructor to student ratio to an absolute minimum. On group lesson days there will be a maximum of 4 students per instructor, and on the putting-into-practice fishing days, only two guests per professional guide.

Group Size: 8 students  (a minimum of 6 students is needed to run the school.


  • April 30: Arrive Wolf Creek Lodge, Montana
  • May 1: Classroom and casting sessions with Simon and Matt 
  • May 2: Morning classroom session, full day of wade fishing with Simon and Matt…
