Josh Nugent

Josh Nugent started fly fishing when he was six years old. Upon the completion of his coaching diploma, he started Out Fly Fishing Outfitters Ltd in 2003. Guiding put Josh through the rest of his undergraduate and graduate degrees at the University of Calgary, where he did an eye tracking study for his Master's Thesis on the visual characteristics of expert fly casters.

Naoto Aoki

Naoto Aoki was born in Banff, Alberta where he began fly fishing at a very early age. With fly fishing as his main focus, Naoto has traveled the globe, pursuing some of the greatest game fish the world has to offer. He is also an outdoor writer and photographer and is regularly featured in such international fly fishing publications and programs. Naoto has guided all over Canada and has spent countless hours on the river. He is an exceptional caster and fly casting instructor.

Steve Luethi

Steve started out as a client of Out Fly Fishing Outfitters before proving himself as one of the most innovative and talented fly tiers they'd ever seen. Steve's understanding of fish behavior, baitfish mannerisms, and how different materials will react in the water make his flies not only incredible to look at, but also amazingly efficient.
Once a student himself, he recognises the obstacles and questions that often plague new anglers. Plus, his skillset, personality, work ethic and fish-sense make him the perfect guide, which is exactly what he spends his time doing in the Central Alberta area.

This is a excellent course for both beginners and experienced fly fishers alike. Covering a very board range of techniques and tactics, it has large volumes of valuable information for those starting out, but also by covering so much allows the more experienced to gain knowledge in areas outside their normal practices. This is a excellent course for all, is very well presented.

LOVED this course. Have been fly fishing for about a year and a half, but learned an incredible amount from Josh. His way of teaching kept me interested and really helped me understand more about the mechanics of this sport. The on-water demonstrations with his helpers were also very helpful and the videography was superb! Highly recommend this course!

Thanks. Still learning new things, even after 25 years as a self-taught trout-annoyer.

Trout fishing can be intimidating.
Where are the fish? What are they eating? How can I get my fly over that rock or current?
This class will teach you how to read and approach water, understand basic entomology and fly selection, learn trick casts to access inaccessible fish, and more.
When we set out to find the best trout anglers we knew, Josh Nugent, Naoto Aoki and the Out Fly Fishing Outfitters Guide Service and Fly Shop crew quickly surfaced to the top of our list. There's something for students of all experience levels and we couldn't be more excited to present this class.
