Fly-Fishing School & Private Instruction

Learn to cast like a pro with our team of expert team of instructors.

Weekend Fly-Fishing School: Over the course of a weekend, you’ll learn the ins and outs of lake fishing, complete with classroom time, casting practice, and time spent on the beautiful Callaway lakes. The Weekend Fly-Fishing School near Atlanta runs on select weekends from March through October, and is limited to only ten participants for the optimal Student-Teacher ratio. Our on-site pro shop, Callaway Outdoors, provides all the necessary equipment, transportation, and lunch on both days, so all you need to do is arrive.

View all 2019 Fly-Fishing School Weekends on our Event Calendar.

Private instruction is also available and offers a condensed version of most of the classroom, fly-casting, and fly-fishing instruction found in the two-day school. All of our courses are taught by professional casting instructors with years of experience and an infectious passion for their pursuits.

Guided Trips

Avid anglers and novices alike will relish the chance to take a guided trip on one of our 12 lakes that are otherwise off limits for fishing. Certified instructors lead the way on half- or full-day guided trips for largemouth bass, bream, and seasonal rainbow trout, dependent on the season.  Our Team at Callaway Outdoors provides all the necessary equipment, and fly-fishing trips are done primarily on float tubes on our professionally managed lakes.

Please note that to maintain the integrity of our beautiful landscape, our guided trips are catch and release only. Float tubes and fly-fishing equipment are only for instruction and guided trips, and are not available for rental.
