Intermediate fly fishers can benefit from instruction on drag-free drift, insect identification, fly patterns, and mending fly line.

Dear Lopstick,

This fishing vaction could not have been better! Every member of the staff was so friendly and courteous. The cabin was the best – clean, warm, fresh, beautiful, comfortable … and hearing the river riffling outside our bedroom window, wow, that was the best.

My guide, Greg, provided me with a very memorable experince. I have been flyfishing all my life and Greg is a first rate fisherman – fish hunter, entomoligist, coach, and companion. Greg made my fishing so easy and enjoyable. I have already booked future trips with him.

Jamie and I cannot say enough good things about our vacation at Lopstick.

We LOVE Lopstick.

Jim & Jamie
