Product description

Max Students: Individual Lesson (1 Student - 1 Instructor)

Location: Grand River - Fergus, Ontario (exact location will be provided after signing up)

Event Type: In-Person only

At the heart of everything, fly casting is truly what makes fly fishing unique and being able to put a fly where you want it is key to success on the water. Because these are one-on-one lessons, we can tailor them to your personalized needs, whatever that may mean. At the end of the class you can expect to better understand the dynamics of your cast, potential areas of growth, and a plan for reaching your goals.

This program is geared towards students who have at minimum basic fly casting experience, however they may be of any higher skill level as well.

Courses are 1 hour long. Course times are firm. If water temperatures on the river exceed 68 degrees F the class may be postponed.


Included for use in each lesson:

-Fly rod, reel, line, & leader (if you'd like to use your own you can)

-Flotation hip pack (to be worn at all times when in or around water)

-expert instruction


Not included:

-footwear with adequate traction and protection must be worn (mandatory)

-brimmed hat or cap (mandatory)

-Meals or snacks

-Beverages or water

-Sunglasses, prescription glasses, or protective eye wear (mandatory)



NOTE: The mandatory waiver and student information form will be sent in a follow-up email and must be submitted well in advance of the class date.  Students will not be admitted to any course without a signed waiver, complete student information form, and specified safety equipment.

Participants between the ages of 14 and 18 must be supervised by a parent or guardian at all times. Please see the policy below!


Class & Cancellation Policy

Class Policy

  • All attendees must sign the release of liability waiver provided before the course commences


  • All attendees must wear the PFDs provided at all times during the course, anytime they are near water. PFDs used for the course are manual-inflated and hip worn.


  • All attendees must provide their own and wear protective eyewear (prescription glasses, safety glasses, or sunglasses) and a brimmed hat, and must wear them through the entire duration of the lesson. Any student arriving at the lesson without protective eyewear or a hat will not be admitted to the course.


  • All attendees must provide suitable clothing for the weather conditions.


  • Our lessons are a safe space for all - racist, homophobic, misogynistic, trans-phobic and any other discriminatory language will not be tolerated


  • No attendee will monopolize the instructor's time through requests and questions, as it must be shared equally amongst all students. Again, we do recommend that you register as an individual to maximize your one-on-one instruction time.


  • No participants may be under the age of 14. A parent or guardian must supervise any attendees under the age of 18 at all times.


  • Any equipment damaged during the course due to negligence of, or misuse by, an attendee will be repaired by Drift Outfitters at the expense of the attendee causing such damage. The fee charged will be the appropriate repair fee per item.


  • An individual enrolling in a course to watch the program (and not participate in hands-on portions) will be charged the same fee as full participants, unless they are supervising a minor.  The individual supervising a minor can not join in on the course without also purchasing a ticket - supervision is not participation.


Cancellation Policy

  • Cancellations made within 7 days of the course will not be issued a refund. Cancellations made up to 7 days before the course will be issued a full refund.


  • Any cancellations of the course due to extreme weather, dangerously high water levels, high winds, or lightning will result in a full refund to the purchaser of the course, or can be used as credit at Drift Outfitters & Fly Shop, and/or deferred to a later date, at the discretion of the student.


Safety is our number one priority. Proper footwear and eye protection (hat & sunglasses) must be worn at all times, pfd's must be worn when in and around water. Students will be instructed in addition on how to behave around water including wading safety, freeing of snags, and hook setting (the last two points are mandated by our insurance provider). Students must fill out a student information form, waiver, and agree to terms, including Covid 19 related conditions before any instruction takes place.
