Foundations of Fly Fishing Classes

January 18, 2013

Fly Fishing Utah has 2013 classes up on their site.  Here is a bit about Spencer Cook owner.   check out classes schedule.


My name is Spencer Cook, I am the owner of as a part of my business Backcountry Fly Fishing. I am a fly fishing instructor and obviously an avid fly fisherman. I became a fly fishing addict in the summer of 2009. Prior to that I had only watched as a close friend of mine (a “dry fly fisherman”) hardly ever caught fish. There was no real incentive for me to try it because I was a very accomplished lure fisherman. However, when circumstances (read about that here) left me with no other alternative , I took the bull by the horns and have never looked back. Fly fishing has opened my eyes to so many new and wonderful things. I cannot imagine life without a fly rod in hand. I have found out that introducing others to this sport and seeing them have success brings just as much joy as catching fish on my own.

This blog is dedicated to introducing new comers to the world of fly fishing and giving them the know-how to get started the right way. There is a large learning curve often associated with fly fishing. The content in this blog will teach you how I overcame this curve. I will show you effective methods to catch fish while assuring you have a solid foundation of knowledge to give you a jump start into the fly fishing world.

I typically post once a week. I am also very active on google+facebooktwitterpinterest, and other social media mediums. I want to encourage you to ask me questions and comment on my posts. I find it very fulfilling to help people find answers. I tend to be a very inquisitive person and that is how I have learned as much as I have in a relatively short period of time.
