Guided Fly Fishing
In each full day of guided fly fishing, we include a filling, personalized lunch, snacks, and transportation from the Duluth-Two Harbors area. Whether your trip will be your first time casting a fly rod, or if you’re looking to learn the finer points of casting, mending or fly presentation, we’ll tailor your trip just for you. We also enjoy highlighting our local wildlife, natural history, ecology, and geology. Photos of your experience are provided via e-mail at no additional charge.
