INTRODUCTION TO FLY FISHING
The perfect adventure for individuals, families, or groups that want to learn the basics of fly fishing during their visit to Yosemite! This beginner trip focuses on basic casting, fly selection, reading water and basic knot tying, as well as Czech Nymphing, dry fly, streaming and wet fly techniques to prepare you for picking up a rod on your home waters! Expect 2 to miles of hiking on this tour.

EXPERIENCED ANGLERS’ FLY FISHING
Enjoy the best of the Yosemite area on our full day fly fishing adventure for intermediate and advanced anglers. Whether you want to try for the elusive Golden Trout in Yosemite backcountry or spend your day in the iconic splendor of Yosemite Valley, our private guide can help you achieve all of your fishing goals! Expect 2 to 5 miles of hiking on this trip, with some being off trail.

HIGH COUNTRY FLY FISHING ADVENTURE
The perfect choice between a Backcountry Hike ‘n’ Wade or High Country Float Tube Adventure on this amazing day spent about 8,000 feet in Yosemite’s pristine high country.
