It's not hard to learn to fly fish.  In fact fly fishing is simple to get started if you know the right way to start.  This seminar is designed to introduce you to the fun, beauty and the excitement that fly fishing brings to all who do it.  There are many myths in fly fishing that scare many away from the sport; it's to hard, expensive, complicated and elitist.  The reality is it's none of those things.  This seminar will explore the simplicity of becoming good in fly fishing quickly.

 


Lance Sellers

Pro staffer for Rocky Mountain Hunting Calls.

 

Im a avid outdoor hunter.  When not chasing screaming bulls in September, I am pursuing the cunning cow yotie (coyote)  In my profession I get to spend  numerous days in the wild learning and chasing animals.  Over the years you learn more and more about the quarry you are chasing and hope everyday I get better.

I’m on the water over 250 days a year. Guiding in Washington,Oregon and Alaska. Teaching my customers how to catch these great fish in some of the most beautiful scenery the Pacific Northwest has to offer is my passion. Conservation is very important to me. I believe that being a good steward of land and sea is a very important part of being a guide and teaching others by example is my responsibility. Being a guide is a my life. Sharing with my customers these great adventures is what it’s all about for me.
