Shredder Outdoors offer three 10-week class sessions (Spring, Summer and Fall). All classes are outdoors. During classes, kids learn the fundamentals of fly-fishing in a fun and safe environment. Over the course of a 10-week session, kids will practice casting and learn other fundamentals of fly-fishing, such as Entomology, Knots, Gear and Line Management, River Strategy, Safety and Environment, Fish Species, and more! Fly-Fishing Classes are designed to practice and learn the fundamentals, so they will have a better experience on the river or lake.
At Shredder Outdoors, we believe kids should be able to act like kids. We also believe fun environments are especially conducive to the kind of learning that prepares them for life’s adventures. Our unique curriculum revolves around fun fishing themes, active adventures and basic casting skills, building confidence while developing key skills.
In this class kiddos will learn the basic knowledge and skills in a unique, relaxed approach! Our progression-based curriculum combined with hands-on activities, visual learning and interaction makes Shredder Outdoor a fun filled, no pressure place to learn and grow. Big Flyers will learn how to tie knots and tie their own flies!
