An absolutely terrific program. Can't say enough about the instructors and the Frost Valley staff. Everyone went to great lengths to make sure we had an enjoyable, productive experience--and they were wonderfully cheerful about it. I highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in fly fishing and really wants to get a solid grasp on the basics.

What a great program. As a complete beginner, I truly enjoyed learning how to fly fish as well as all the details that go into it from the life cycle of the insects to the way the rivers flow. And the beauty of the Catskills was a bonus. The people were great, the staff was great and the food was delicious. The patience, skill and enthusiasm of the instructors made this a most memorable vacation. I will be fishing now for years to come.

The fly fishing course was fantastic. I learned the basic technics of fly fishing and had a great time doing it with the instructors and other participants. As a side experience the location of the course at Frost Valley provides the opportunity to be in a natural environment way from the every day hussel and bussel and tenstion.
