Michigan Trout Unlimited Fly Fishing School


The Michigan Council Trout Unlimited Fly Fishing School is indeed one of the country's finest.  The school has been in existence for 44 years.  The school seeks to improve the skill of fly fishers from beginner to expert.  The 3-day school is held once a year in early June, on the Boardman River approx. 12 miles from Traverse City, MI.

The 2014 school will be June 6, 7 & 8.

Here master certified casting instructor Dave Leonhard goes over some basic casts on one of the ranch's ponds. 

The school's courteous and highly talented instructors provide challenging and constructive guidance to students of all skill levels.  We keep the student to instructor ratio to 4:1 or less to ensure personal attention for all students.

Instructor Ed Kulnis explains how to read the water and how to cast to this particular situation.

Three levels of instruction are offered:

The beginner level of instruction is for people who have never tried fly casting before or have very little experience. 

Intermediate instruction is designed for those with some fly fishing experience who want to brush up on fundamentals and casting techniques. 

Advanced instruction is reserved for those whose skills are proficient and who want to learn more challenging techniques.

Beginners are instructed in the basics of fly casting and fly fishing and are introduced to a wide variety of angling interests.

Experienced fly fishers will improve their skills, technique and knowledge of the sport.
