Want to get better at fishing the Missouri River? Want to improve your dry fly cast? Presentation? Fish finding skills? Well we do too! And this fall we once again offer Headhunters Fly Shop Advanced Fly Fishing School.

We offer two sessions this October with the first being Thursday evening October 4th thru Monday morning October 8th. The second session begins Thursday evening October 18th and finishing Monday morning October 22nd.

This is not a school for novice anglers. This is a school for intermediate to advanced anglers wanting to push the limit of trout fishing. We have structured the classroom and on the water sessions for advanced anglers.

This is an all inclusive Fly Fishing School. From meals, to classroom sessions, instruction from Headhunters top guides, class handbook, and some cool swag you take home with you. But the experience and the knowledge are the two biggest keys to your success.

This is a school structured for those who are looking to get a leg up on the competition. All those finicky trout in this world. Think of it as a 400 level college class. 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 fly fishing situations.

2018 Headhunters Fly Shop Advanced Fly Fishing School

You lodging will be upriver at Montana’s Wolf Creek Lodge just a couple miles outside of Wolf Creek up HWY. 434. A perfect lodge environment for this school. A great room for presentations and dining, 4 outside entry rooms with two beds, WiFi, microwave, satellite TV, small refrigerator. A cool kitchen located in the lodge for all meals. Pool table, big flatscreen, porch overlooking Little Wolf Creek, and this property is located on about 5 private acres. Quiet. And quite a place. The perfect harbor for you and this school!

*Double occupancy is preferred but we can accommodate 2 single occupancy guests. You will be coupled with another angler/student in the drift boat.

Montana’s Wolf Creek Lodge

A classroom session in the morning followed by about 6-7 hours on the water with personal attention and instruction with your guide/instructor. Each day is dedicated to a specific discipline. Dry fly fishing, nymph fishing, and streamer fishing. Although just like the the trout we can adapt and be fluid. We can certainly adapt for the type of learning you desire. If you want to fish for rising fish daily as opposed to wearing your arm out streamer fishing, we can do that. If you want to streamer fish between dry fly spots? We got you. If you want to focus on wade fishing deep bucket nymphing? We will accommodate. The morning classroom sessions are more rigid but the remainder of your time is open to personal scripting.

Appetizers, a glass of wine or beer, and dinner back at the lodge is what will occupy your evenings. A great time for fellowship, exchange of ideas, and relaxation time. Then get a good Montana’s night sleep and get after it again in the morning!
