Fly Fishing Schools. Two decades of instruction experience, dedicated facilities. The all inclusive fly fishing school in Michigan's Huron Manistee national forest.

Unlock the Secrets

Even the most seasoned and experienced anglers will never unlock all of the secrets of fly fishing. Trying to master the arts of fly selection, presentation, casting, and water-reading, as well as learning fish habits, insect hatches, selection and care of equipment can be very intimidating for novices and veteran anglers alike.

Fly Fishing School Courses

Two Decades of Fly Fishing Instruction

Schmidt Outfitters offers diversified courses for every skill level. We have been teaching men, women, and children the art of fly fishing for over two decades. From a beginners’ course in trout fishing, to Spey and advanced casting, to fly tying, we strive to offer a fun and engaging experience. Our courses are taught by Federation of Fly Fishers certified casting instructors.

Experienced and seasoned by years of on-the-water instruction as professional fly fishing guides, our school staff has the skill and versatility to teach students at all levels.

All Inclusive Fly Fishing School

You won’t find any hidden expenses in our programs. Our fly fishing schools focus on teaching students, not selling gear.

Schools at Schmidt Outfitters are all-inclusive: we include meals, lodging, and instruction. We provide all the equipment needed including rods, reels, and lines from a variety of manufacturers.
