Our Private Half Day fly fishing trips are a great way for beginners to see what fly fishing is all about and also for experts that are trying to squeeze a little fly fishing time into their busy Yosemite schedule. This trip will give our licensed fly fishing guides plenty of time to teach beginners basic fly fishing skills and it will allow just the right amount of time for experts to hook into some beautiful wild trout. Our guides will teach you what type of gear to use, what to look for when you're reading the water, how to match local hatches and the best way to present your fly to an awaiting trout. This trip is a wonderful way to build a solid foundation of skills that would normally take years to master on your own.
