MONDAY - FRIDAY 10:00AM - 5:30PM



George Cook is coming to Juneau in 2016 to teach another round of switch and spey casting classes. These classes will take place on the Mendenhall River and are capped at 6 people per class. No experience necessary, all skill levels are welcome, gear is provided or you can bring your own. 

George will have a full line up of Sage and Redington two-handed rods for demo. 

June 4th - 1pm - 4pm
June 5th - 9am - Noon

Class Fee: $75 in advance. Class sizes are limited so give us a call at 586-1550 to sign up soon!


Free casting lessons are a hands on way to get two hours on the water with an instructor and a group of other eager anglers. We will head to the river and put a rod in your hand, and teach you a couple of casting techniques that will get you out on the water fishing that day! Dress for the weather. If you have your own gear, bring it. If not, we will have gear for you to use. For all lessons, meet at the Alaska Fly Fishing Goods shop and we will instruct where to go from there.
