Fly Fishing Lessons in Maine: The Best Fly Fishing School

Visiting Maine?  Looking for fly-fishing or fly-casting lessons that are designed to meet your personal and financial needs? You could take a class at a typical brick-n-mortar, large class, fly fishing school.  Or, you could work with a team of highly trained educators who offer one-on-one and small group lessons (less than 4 students).  Science proves that our educational model works best. Don't believe us?  Read our student testimonials:

  • "I could not have asked for a better guide and instructor."
  • "Great teacher! I am a new fisherman, and brand new to fly fishing, and Mark was the perfect way to start."
  • "Yesterday, I finally took a fly fishing casting lesson from Mark Foley a local New England guide.  Let me tell you that this was the best money ever spent on anything I have bought in the fly-fishing industry." 
  • "You are a gifted teacher and coach that has helped me transform from a fisherman to a FLY FISHERMAN. Thank you!"
  • "Thanks for all your help! You were the best teacher ever!"
  • "Mark is one of the most generous teachers I know."  
  • "He is an inspirational teacher."
  • "He is a great instructor and makes learning easy!
