PLEASE NOTE: If response to these classes is strong enough, we will schedule additional classes. AND, If you are interested in any of these classes, but our schedule, including any additional classes we might have, does not meet with yours, you can create your own class. If you can put together six individuals for the beginners fly fishing class, four people for the fly tying class, and two people for the intermediate class, call us. We will do what we can to put together a class for you.
Also, know that the State of Wisconsin, because we do fish in some of our classes, requires you to have a fishing license. RNC presumes you know this and have obtained your license prior to the start of class.
