The Denver Fly Fishing Section promotes the aquatic habitat of the Colorado Rockies. We are part of the non-profit Colorado Mountain Club, the Centennial State's top outdoor group.
Classes and clinics are regularly conducted for members.
Introductory fly fishing and tying schools are held annually. For more

Fly Fishing School
This school is designed to teach beginners with little or no experience. Students provide their own rod, reel, line waders, boots and license. We provide most everything else. The course consists of three evening lectures of three hours each and two field trips.
Fly Tying School
This school is designed for those with little or no experience. Tying equipment and materials are provided. The school consists of four classes providing instruction on tying tools and how to use them, attaching the thread, attaching the materials, fly proportions, and finishing the fly.
Fly Tying Seminars
In the off season, some of our more experienced fly tyers may offer evening seminars regarding specific topics or flies. The pre-requisite experience is Fly Tying School or the equivalent. Although instructional, the presence of tyers of different skill levels makes for good discussion and exchange of ideas. This is a great way to learn new skills at higher detail.
Fly Casting Clinics
Fly Casting Clinics are offered periodically throughout the season to help our members improve their casting. They may cover general or specific topics relative to casting. The clinics are led by a Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Casting Instructor with help from some of our very experienced members. Member feedback regarding these clinics has been good, and these are an excellent opportunity to improve your skills and line control.
On River Clinics
During the season, more experienced members of our Section may offer on river instruction in specific areas or techniques. These are usually designated as Instructional Trips. They may cover such topics as nymph fishing, dead drift, and dry fly fishing, to name a few. This is a perfect way to delve into details of different techniques and receive instruction from an experienced person.
