Midwest Fly Fishing Schools

Press Release- 2/16/16

Mad River Outfitters Launches the Midwest Fly Fishing Schools

After 26 years of teaching fly fishing in the region, Mad River Outfitters of Columbus, Ohio has unveiled their latest venture, the official Midwest Fly Fishing Schools. 

These 1 and 2-day fly fishing schools will be geared towards absolute beginners and will be held at some fabulous locations such as Sunnybrook Trout Club and Zanesfield Rod and Gun Club among others.  They will be scheduled periodically throughout the season with the first schools starting in April of this year. No equipment or experience necessary as everything can be provided. You just show up at the location and they have you covered from there. These schools are centrally located and will draw crowds from throughout the Midwest region.

In addition to the beginner type schools, they will also be offering Intermediate schools, a variety of Classes and Seminars on various topics as well as species specific “On-River Seminars”.

They have amassed a group of veteran instructors such as Brian Flechsig, Graham Stokes, Jeff Liskay, Jerry Darkes, Ryan Ratliff and more. In addition, consultants and future participants in the schools include angling legends such as Flip Pallot. Pallot has helped to put together the casting program for the schools and will also be brought to the Midwest for a “Saltwater Specific” fly fishing school in the near future.

“You simply won’t find a more experienced staff of instructors…..period” said Mad River Outfitters founder Brian Flechsig when interviewed recently about the new launch. “We are thrilled with the staff and the program we have put together here. We will redefine how fly fishing is taught”.
