Learning To Fly Fish is Easy and Fun

The Orvis Virginia Fly Fishing School, hosted by Mossy Creek Fly Fishing is a great first step on your fly-fishing journey. Our full-day school gives you the knowledge and skills to enjoy a lifetime of fly-fishing adventures.

Mossy Creek’s professional instructors have years of experience and are as excited about teaching as they are about fishing.  The historic setting of our retail store combined with the beauty of our private spring creeks creates a relaxed and pleasurable introduction to fly-fishing.  Our student-to-teacher ratios are four or fewer students to instructor, providing first-rate, personal attention for each student. 

The curriculum includes:

  • Fly casting techniques
  • Essential fly fishing knots
  • Choose your gear and tackle
  • Bug science, aka stream entomology
  • Proper fly selection
  • Reading the water and currents
