This is an all inclusive Fly Fishing School. From meals, to classroom sessions, instruction from Headhunters top guides,  and some cool swag you take home with you.

Trico hatches daily!

This is not a class for novices. This is a school structured for those who are looking to get a leg up on the competition. If you want to catch all those finicky trout on the Mo and beyond, this class is designed for you! Think of it as a 300 to 400  or even 500 level college class.

Find your inner Dry Fly Chi!

We will present advanced techniques including casting, fish finding, water reading, bug selection, presentation styles, knots, rigging techniques…tons of information to give you the necessary tools to tackle difficult, albeit common, Missouri River dry fly fishing situations.

We will be both in and out of the boat learning. Wade fishing dry fly techniques are quite important. Taking what you learn here on the Mo and applying it to your local stream is what we want! Coming to the school with questions, an assessment of where you are at in your dry fly game, and a willingness to learn are all components of a successful session!

The Dry Fly School is more than just a guide trip. Expect on the water sessions with the group, and individually. The guide/instructor line-up is world class. Each one of our instructors has 30+ years of teaching experience. Each one of them has devoted his life to the pursuit of trout, and the dry fly!

If you’d like to book a guide trip for dry flies, we can help you there too! Just call up our crack booking agents 406-235-3447.
