Fly Fishing Schools

Pennsylvania Fly Fishing Schools

sch1Why are our fly fishing schools the best? They feature private instruction by friendly, experienced guides and instructors in a relaxed setting at our Outdoor Education Center located minutes from the Cabela’s in Hamburg PA. Our goal is to have you leave your school with a positive outlook on fly fishing, along with the skills you need to fly fish on your own. We have taught these schools for over two decades, and as a result, our former students are now our best clients because they have come to recognize that the same level of expertise and commitment that goes into our schools goes into everything we do.

Rivers Outdoor Education Center. Fly Fishing Schools in PA, Located minutes from Cabela’s in Hamburg
Located in Eastern PA, our schools are close to Philadelphia, New Jersey, New York, and Baltimore as well as Allentown, Bethlehem, and the rest of the Lehigh Valley. Our Outdoor Education Center is nestled along the banks of the Little Schuylkill River, an easily wadeable freestone trout stream, perfectly suited for beginners. Combined with our comfortable classroom, these resources form the ultimate fly fishing school experience where we can transition from video and other visual presentations directly to the river. Our schools include the use of quality fishing tackle, we don’t make you rent tackle like other places, and all full day schools include lunch and refreshments. Our facility can accommodate small group schools and we are fully equipped and capable to handle corporate groups for a unique recreation experience.
