|The Contented Angler
"Where Flyfishing is still an honorable pastime"
We don't just teach flyfishing, we teach angling.
|"Unless one can enjoy himself fishing with the fly, even when his efforts are
unrewarded, he loses much real pleasure. More than half the intense
enjoyment of fly fishing is derived from the beautiful surroundings, the
satisfaction felt from being in the open air, the new lease of life secured
thereby, and the many pleasant recollections of all one has seen, heard,

"Fishing with the Fly"
Joe & Amy Gablick. 40+ years experience.
|You have fished trout streams all your life and you are fairly
confident about your casting, that is, until you go to the ocean or
any larger body of water and realize you can't cast. Fly casting
and the teaching methods have changed considerably since
carbon fiber came on the scene. It would take about 10 minutes to
teach you how to toss a fly on any stream in Pa. It takes a little
longer and a commitment to practice to teach you fly casting the
proper way. We teach one experts' method and it is imperative
that we teach it properly. We don't want you practicing mistakes.
There is no charge for our instruction. When you are serious
about learning and ready to make the commitment we will be here.
We also specialize in teaching children.
|"Like our fly tying, we do not charge for fly casting lessons. Fly
Fishing is an honorable pastime not to be exploited by trying to
make a profit on every aspect of it. We are not so egotistic to
believe our instruction is worth hundreds of dollars. One place is
not thankful that you bought equipment from them, they also are
bold enough to charge you for instruction. We are not
comfortable doing what isn't fair"
|A lack of vitamin D is one of many reasons doctors are
prescibing going ourdoors for young people. Fly fishing
is not only relaxing, it's healthy
|We are thankful to Penn State New Kensington for choosing our
Fly Fishing program for their "Kids in College" fly fishing camp.
It was an honor to be part of it!
|I am not an FFF caster. Many feel they need the
title, but many of the best casters in the world don't
need it nor do they want it! We teach the proper
way to cast. I have beaten all of the FFF casters
that have had the courage to show up here.
