Other Fly Fishing Classes in New Hampshire

If you can't make the class at the AMC Highland Center, the majority of our classes are taught on our private casting pond, located near the seacoast of New Hampshire.  Keep in mind, our not-for-profit, donation only fee structure provides the best opportunity for beginners to enter this sport. Please feel to read more about our mission and our teaching/educational philosophy.

If we don't make fly fishing an accessible and affordable sport, we all lose. 

Educational Fly Fishing Classes-Partnerships

We love to teach!  Most of our classes are small; one to four students, per session.  But,  if needed, we can teach larger groups.  In fact, one of our goals at FCFF is to set up sustainable community based educational fly fishing programs.  In other words, we teach via public/private schools,  parks and recreation departments, summer camps, and lots more.  We show you and your community how a 'donation only' fly fishing school can be a 'continued' valuable resource for your community.  If this sounds interesting to you please read more at or contact FCFF.

Hope to see you at a class or on the river!
