What people are saying about the School of Trout
"The School of Trout brings together some of America’s finest and most talented instructors, and offers its students a chance to learn from the very best of the best.”
"Is dad a trout fisherman? Does he want to become one? I can't think of a better way to either learn the sport or enhance existing skills than getting a Masters degree with the folks at the School of Trout. The school, which offers both a basic and advanced class, is held in one of the most hallowed trout settings in the world: The banks of the Henry's Fork in Idaho. The ‘classes’ include seminars on trout behavior, equipment, knots, casting and hooking and releasing fish. And the professors? This might be the best thing about the school.”
